    Since there isn't really a thread about it. I decided to make one. So I don't derail the AMD thread. LOL

    Intel's Kaby Lake processor seems to be en-route to be available for the consumers by end of the year 2016 and early 2017. Expect this to be for the Core i5 and i7 lineup. The Kabby i3's from the looks of things on the latest roadmap leak will be available to the public in around April 2017.

    Cannonlake should also be produced in LGA1151 form too... so watch this thread for news on that whenever they come out.

    Didn't they already have to do this in the late 2000s?

    I think that was when the US government fined them. This is the same scandal... just the EU side of things.

    5 or 6 years ago they paid AMD 1.25 billion to drop direct AMD lawsuits against them, plus made changes to the license agreements between them. But all government's antitrust lawsuits are still going after them.

    Meh the 7700k won't be a worthy upgrade for me...

    What's the performance difference like between the 6700K and the 7700K? Knowing Intel quite small? ;)

    Really a 5 year old i5 2500K or a 6 year old i5 760 is still fine. I'm using a 4 year old i7 3770 and it's still decent. :)

    Of course it still is. I was comparing my 980 Ti Unigine results with someone in a Facebook group. He had a 3770k and a 980 ti and got the same results as my 6700k and 980 ti. I plan to keep my 6700k for at least 2 years, but will probably keep it for even more.

    Yeah given Intel's performance increases over the past 4 or 5 years I'd say you'll be good with a 6700K for more than 2 years. More like 5. That makes the high price worthwhile because it's a good investment.

    If you check out my findings in this thread http://www.computerforum.com/thread...de-500-1200-builds.239333/page-2#post-2010776 you can see that generally since the 2500K there hasn't been a huge amount of performance increase of i5s. The biggest changes were the 760 to the 2500K and the 4690K to the 6600K. Numbers aside, they're all still very usable.

    I upgrade my GPU every year. I don't upgrade CPUs very often. I was planning to keep my FX 8350 until Zen but it died so I went i7.
    I got the 8350 in 2014

    You can be an enthusiast without buying any hardware, your purchases aren't what defines you.

    Especially when what your an enthusiast about is way out of your practical budget.

    Everything back to the 2500K essentially performs the same (minus some slightly more substantial deviations in CPU-bound games) in benchmarks (within about 5-10 FPS usually). Hell, even the 970 still does a damn good job, for it's age.

    I really don't think your 980 Ti was so poor of a performer that you needed a 1080. I think you just want to upgrade for the sake of upgrading.

    I just want to keep up with technology. But when the Ti comes out I'll go SLI with my 1080 instead of the Ti, just so that the case looks less empty. Plus the 1080 price will probably drop.
