    Pretty neat stuff if it's true. Maybe sitting on this old Sandy Bridge 2600k for so long was a good idea in the long run!

      Nice, just when I was about to think of upgrading. Better take this into account. Thanks for the heads-up!

        This may be what I've been waiting for to upgrade. Or I'll wait to see how Cannonlake turns out.

        Sandy bridge was truly the best lineup up until Ryzen. My 2500k was going strong too, but lightning took out the motherboard sadly, and Z68's are rare these days. Hopefully there's an actual performance increase this time instead of just a rehashed overclock.

                Software still isn't really multi-threaded... Not sure what people are going to get out of this unless if you're virtualizing... I'll probably get one; but... yeah.

                  I remember some editors being really excited when the 12 core trashcan Mac came out, until they found out that after spending the roughly 10k to get one, programs just bottlenecked because there was no support for it what so ever.

                  I could probably just google this by why don't they increase the GHZ and single-threaded performance instead of adding more cores and hoping software adapts to it?

                  Input in vs thermals out. I think. Kylie would probably know.

                    I guess it's time to upgrade my Mac. I've enjoyed the i7 line for all the horsepower I've gotten out it.

                    Render faster, more projects, more money, more money for blackjack and hookers. Definitely a good investment :cat:
