[QUOTE=tmc8080;2757979]these are about 5 years late and supposed to have 6 cores by now…
they’re also moe expesive and rumored to be the end of the line for desktop/laptop pc cpu’s[/QUOTE]
I cant think of any reason why intel would want to have a six core CPU in their mainstream line, they dont have any competition and i dont see any reason why stop milking the cow. If you want six core then X99 is the way to go, unfortunately.
If you are a gamer and you are still with an i5-750 or a 2xxx/3xxx then this would be a huge step forward, if you are something newer and capable of overclocking then you might not want to upgrade.
There are other storage related parts of the z170 that can make this an attractive platform, but most gamers want benefit from all this that much.
So far I see that this new CPUs can reach a max overclock of 4.6GHz, not bad, but at the same time nothing to get over excited.
