    Release of Intel 14nm Broadwell desktop CPUs due for Q2 2015

    This might not be really new news, but I was wondering how the desktop Broadwell release was tracking.
    Found a very recent article, dated 22 Oct 2014. Link: http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20141022PD204.html
    Motherboard players and Intel to face challenges over CPU product line management in 2Q15
    Intel will have a total of four CPU product lines for the desktop market in the second quarter of 2015: the new 14nm Broadwell series and Skylake-S series which are both set to launch in the quarter; the existing 22nm Haswell Refresh series and the overclockable Haswell-E series, according to sources from motherboard players. ...
    For those of us crunching World Community Grid (WCG) 24/7, the power savings from 14nm might provide a reason to upgrade from Sandy/Ivy Bridge machines.

    Hard to build up excitement about Broadwell if Skylake is coming just a few months after.

    At the speed these CPU's are coming out, i'll be waiting forever to upgrade...just...slow down! O.o

    Main Rig

    Intel Core i7-2600K (SLB8W, E0 Stepping) @ 4.6Ghz (4.6x100), Corsair H80i AIO Cooler
    MSI Z77A GD-65 Gaming (MS-7551), v25 BIOS
    Kingston HyperX 16GB (2x8GB) PC3-19200 Kit (HX24C11BRK2/16-OC) @ 1.5v, 11-13-13-30 Timings (1:8 Ratio)
    8GB MSI Radeon R9 390X (1080 Mhz Core, 6000 Mhz Memory)
    NZXT H440 Case with NZXT Hue+ Installed
    24" Dell U2412HM (1920x1200, e-IPS panel)
    1 x 500GB Samsung 850 EVO (Boot & Install)
    1 x 2Tb Hitachi 7K2000 in External Enclosure (Scratch Disk)


    Entertainment Setup

    Samsung Series 6 37" 1080p TV
    Gigabyte GA-J1800N-D2H based media PC, Mini ITX Case, Blu-Ray Drive
    Netgear ReadyNAS104 w/4x2TB Toshiba DTACA200's for 5.8TB Volume size

    I refuse to participate in any debate with creationists because doing so would give them the "oxygen of respectability" that they want.
    Creationists don't mind being beaten in an argument. What matters to them is that I give them recognition by bothering to argue with them in public.

    CPU release speed is high, actual CPU speed increases are small.

    Heh, I'm still rocking my circa 2009 CPU and have no intention of upgrading. The desktop cpu market is one of the most boring markets in the entire IT arena, talking about a disappointment. Ever since AMD started getting paid to create under performing CPUs (I honestly can't believe that AMD engineers cannot to this day create a cpu with a better IPC than the 6 year old bloomfield arc; the very same guys who could easily dominate their opposition just a few years back) it's a rather embarrassing show.

    So yeah I don't look forward to the broadwell release. Intel these days is glorified semiconductor manufacturer who can create crazy small transistors who also dabbles in processors (but doesn't act as if it is their main job, they don't need do actually, for reasons that I explained) and that's about it ... peace

    I will happily admit that at 3915Mhz, my Q9650 is still ripping up most modern gaming titles, but it *is* showing its age/FSB/PCIE 2.0 limitations now, i think an SSD is my next stop, before total system replacement.

    If there was a sentence i could use to sign off on it with it'd be: "That'll do, pig."

    About PCIE 2.0, how do you see these limitations? I thought it didn't matter that much, but honestly I'm not sure.

    A fresh install on a new SSD would be a nice upgrade.

    Hmm - interesting graph that - i would have thought it would have made far more of an impact than it actually does!

    Yeah, I've seen tests with similar results in the past. I guess your GPU is more of a bottleneck than the PCIE interface itself.

    SSD is the biggest upgrade anyone with a decent system besides it can do.Well you WILL feel the difference going for something with intergrated NB, but it isnt really stellar difference like with ssd vs hdd.Im pretty sure you can hang in there until skylake :-)

    I've been running a GTX 970 on a P45 w/ a Q9550 clocked @ 3.6GHz. While it's beginning to show its age with some games(CPU utilization @ ~70-90%; and a few microstutters here and there), this rig has done quite admirably. Definitely will be upgrading when DDR4 components drop down to enthusiast-level prices :P

    Edit: And yes, a SSD makes night-day difference, even on a SATA 2 system

    power savings would need to be out of this world to make upgrading from ivy to broadwell worth it

    This is where I'm at. I'd hate to put together a Broadwell rig then watch Intel release Skylake within 6 months.

    I'll stick with my workhorse Core 2 @ 3.6 for now.
