So, it seems Intel's next offering is around the corner... well, officially August; but you know what Intel employees are like, they get all
14nm architecture... possibly being revised down to 10nm with a subsiquent release before 2017...damn that's small...
Skylake is being hailed as the biggest leap forward since Nahalem.. (you know, when the original line of i5s and i7s hit back in the proverbial 'day' (well, 2008ish?).
I suspect most of the same issues that Sandy bridge had on launch will resurface some time or another... just as they did with Ivy and Haswell.
I'm planning to upgrade to one of the new chips... but not until they've been out for a few months I don't think. Nothing quite like spending ludicrous amounts of money on a new motherboard and CPU to learn that the chipset is going to slowly degrade your hard disks... (ahem, sandy bridge.)
What are y'all thinking then?
