If you thought the tablets, ultrabooks, and desktops of today already seem fast — get ready to be blown away.

You best tell these guys that they are wasting there time, other wise they are going to be wasting a lot of money :)
And you best get some emails of to the rest of the world as it seems they are all about to make a terrible mistake.

I mean would it have been to much to ask to just have 5 spare pins ?
Wait for Skylake is what i say, at least then it make buying a new MoBo worth while with DDR4

For me, as an AMD sort, I'm not feeling a big urge to dump my Phenom II X3 - OC'd to 3.2, it feels snappy enough for most anything I use it for. It seems to crunch through massive Excel spreadsheets a bit faster than the first-gen Core i3 I have at work.
Next will likely be a VGA upgrade - my GTS450's a bit long in the tooth. By the time I'm really itching to upgrade my processor, Steamroller will likely be out and it will be time for an entire platform upgrade.
