    Any chance of running some benchies on it? Or work only machine? Be interesting to see how it compares in cpu benchmarks.

    I won't go off topic too much.
    No tweaking.
    Image editing is single threaded and relies a lot on the SSD. This aren't a fast ssd (Hynix 512GB)
    Encoding is pretty fast as expected
    OpenCL is crap as a rendering card
    Heavy Multitasking is good.

    I knows its a longshot but does anyone know when the replacement for X99 will be out?

    im guessing mid next year?

    im wanting to upgrade from X58 and dont want to drop money on X99 only for it to be superseeded 6 months later.

    I would rather get the X99 replacement when it launches as that would be a good upgrade.

    10 cores, 64GB+ ram, high end board and dual AMD/nvidia cards. :D

    How do you know it will be a "good" upgrade? What, because it is newer?

    All supported by X99 already. for example, this board:

    https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/X99WSIPMI/specifications/

    There is no official slideshows/leaks for the replacement chipset of the X99. Some say Skylake-e, but that is just speculation. It may, it may not be that.

    Too early to tell. Intel is committed to X99 for at least this whole year.

    Hopefully skylake-e has unlocked bclk. Then cheap oced xeons will be a thing again.

    anyone have a rough eta on this cpu ?
    keen for an upgrade but don't want to jump on 5960x if these will be out soon.

    Rough ETA is not long after Computex Taipei which is 31st May to 4th June.

    Bios updates for x99 boards should be released around this time too.

    Let me remind people here, no new chipset or board to be released when Broadwell-E is released.

    X99 is still the top tier prosumer chipset. Even though it is already a few years old...

    Broadwell-EP cpu sku list is out, and its disappointing. I sold my ivy-bridge xeon in anticipation of E5 broadwell xeons, still no 8core @ 3ghz-3.6ghz & under 95w.... :(

    The E5-16*0 v4's are still yet to be reveled, but i ain't holding my breath

    Cores/Threads TDP Base Clockspeed Price
    E5-2699 v4 22/44 145W 2.2GHz $4115

    I would think it is not currently possible to have a CPU clocking as high as 3.6GHz and be under 100w TDP??

    Someone feel free to correct me. :Paranoid:

    I dont think its a matter of whether its possible, but one of whether its economically viable without eating into other potential sku sales.

    There is also the possibility that the binning requirements might be alittle too high to create enough stock for such a sku.

    What I am seeing in Anadtech forum is this, at present I can not vouch for the accuracy of this information

    Apparent reseller price for Intel Broadwell E in US $, OMG, again note
    cost for resellers, not end users. Looks like in Australia I have to start looking for a potential customer for one of my kidneys

    Intel Core i7-6950X – BX80671I76950X ($1609.37 US)
    Intel Core i7-6900K – BX80671I76900K ($1024.70 US)
    Intel Core i7-6850K – BX80671I76850K ($602.11 US)
    Intel Core i7-6800K – BX80671I76800K ($422.60 US)

    yeah like i said earlier, massive letdown from Intel. Broadwell-E is a bust for everyone except datacenter customers.

    its suppose to be upto+19% better over haswell-E, but due to the reduced clockspeeds all round, the avg difference is 3% (anndtech review).

    personally, the E5-2640 v3 (8c/16t @2.6ghz-3.4ghz & 90w TDP) is looking tempting especially with the incoming price drops as its succeeded by the v4's.
