    Sorry that was another good reason to get more cores. I edited my previous post to include requirement for hosting VMs. :thumbup:

    Hell no. I'd just not splurge on a 5960x and settle for 4c/8t for a little while.

    Seems like I was wrong the 5930K replacement is only 6c/12t.

    So will be needing $1600 for 8c/16t part???

    Put a Wanted to buy ad here on OCAU. You might be lucky to have a seller. And they go for around $1000 ~ $1100 here. They were cheaper last year (of course because of the stronger dollar that trickles down to the used value too).

    But if you want 8C/16T right now then yeah, $1600......... :sick:

    So if I go for Broadwell E, what features will I miss out by not waiting for Skylake E ?

    There are no solid details yet for Skylake-E yet, so can't really comment. Likely to be a different socket and requiring a different chipset, aka, whole new platform architecture.

    I would say details would slowly get released on the usual sites not long after Broadwell-E is on the shelves.

    Correct, Broadwell-E is just a refresh of the existing 2011-3 CPU range. And it will be s short lived life span as it is due for release Q1 2016 and Skylake-E is due for release Q3 2016.... :sick:

    So basically the 5960X is due for end of life any time in Q1 2016....

    You will have to pre- order 6950X if you want to remain at the "top" <-- as you put it. :tongue: :lol: :tongue:

    Also your mainboard vendor will most likely release a bios update to support the new CPU mircocodes. :thumbup:

    After much research I bought something I never thought I would. A Dell Precision 5810 with an intel E5-2697 v3 from dell outlet. A 14c/28t 2.6 GHz turbo 3.6 haswell E based chip.

    The price with whole system AUD5199 with 128GB ECC, 2x512 SSD and Quadro K4200 is in line with a new 5960X system with comparable components. And a 6950X would cost me more. If the rumours are true about the USD1500 and how the way AUD is going.

    I am set for another 4 years. :)

    Good work, clearly you require the extra C's/T's so great that you searched a little harder then most to get a better "bang for buck" system. :thumbup:

    On another topic, I am really interested to see if there are any other differences between the 6800K and the 6850K, apart from the clock speed. No more info at this stage.

    Me hoping for 40 lanes on the 6850K, but one can only hope.... :lol:

    Haha indeed, no point me changing cpu's. Wont get what i want for my 5960X even if i sell now in lu of the upcoming release of broadwell-e

    Rampage V GENE COME AT ME.

    Fukn asus, release gene for EVERY SOCKET EXCEPT X99

    that would be nice. 5820K was a great chip for me since i used it in ITX build, but 28 lanes compared to 40, given the price difference between a 5820K and 5930K, not really worth the extra dollars for the lanes.

    Yeah, could give 2 hoots about 40PCIe lanes. It's really a marketing ploy - unless you are Vince or one of the top becnhmark guys.

    But a competitively priced 8-core is a salivating prospect. Cmon Intel, give us some cheap goodies.

    Maybe you can go broadwell E Xeons and overclock instead. :leet:

    I'm running the same workstation at work albeit with a 6 core and 32GB. they are SOLID workstations. Mine gets smashed 24/7 with virtual machines and it has not missed a beat. Good choice. :thumbup:

    I had it for a few days and am very happy with it. Very quite machine even when under 14/28t full load for hours.

    I do miss the configurations and tweaking and ocing as there is none of that. Am trying to buy their drive cage to fit 4xssd total which is again part of the game when you are buying dell.

    The 2697v3 is a monster and even with the new rounds of Broadwell E I won't feel bad. With turbo at 3.6GHz and 35MB L3 I don't have to be slow with single threaded simple tasks/gaming either. I suppose the new 6950x at 10c 3.0GHz maybe quicker but who knows.
