    Well according to the leaked performance figures for IB-E, they are not going to be worth it for current LGA 2011 users since you get about a 10% improvement at stock speed, but iirc they didn't mention about the temperatures.

    On one side, a person who needs more performance than what current $250 - $360 Intel quad cores offer, is not your typical PC user. So, this is not gonna make much of a difference for your typical desktop PC user who only stresses his CPU when gaming. On the other side, even for gaming, using a GPU to process physics and AI yields much better results than a multi core CPU and is more efficient, power wise.

    Here's what a 42 GFLOPs-rated GPU can do compared to a quad core CPU in physics processing:

    Hmm, no mention of a new X99 chipset - just X79 with Ivy Bridge E support - maybe we won't need new motherboards - Wishful Thinking Mode - ON [X] OFF [ ]

    Haswell-E will need a new MoBo AFAIK, but going on the mistakes i have made with Haswell-E so far it maybe a good idea to read for your self :worried:
