Notice how the slides say "DESKTOP". Broadwell won't be a desktop architecture (outside of BGA that no one cares about).

Lol... Intel is trying to pull an Nvidia, "Oh no you wont see any 700 series cards until 2014 so you should buy a GTX titan..." 3 months later: "Surprise heres the 700 series"

I'd like to see some benchmarks, but right now I can't justify the cost to upgrade for the small gains in performance I'd see over my current system. Without pressure from AMD Intel is just going to relax and coast in the performance desktop segment. Sadly it seems like it will be a very long time before I build my next performance desktop system.

I always wait for the tock's! So my next PC probably won't be until 2016. It'll be worth it though. I'm hoping for a 24-core 10 GHz monster!!

Back in June of 2010 I got an i7 875k. 8 threads overclocked to 4.2ghz. It is three years later and what did I upgrade to? An i7 4770k. 8 threads overclocked to 4.3ghz. Went from a passmark of 7,787 to 12,185. Yea a healthy upgrade, but dude i wouldn't hold your breath for a 10ghz 24 core.

I meant it kind of tongue in cheek but I live in hope!

My new (2011) PC doubled the GHz of my old PC and added 7 extra cores. But going from 5 to 10 may be a bit more of a stretch considering the heat will go up drastically on a smaller die size as the CPU frequency increases.
