"and if you're interested in a multi-GPU setup that needs the extra PCI-Express lanes, you can probably afford the extra $200 for the upgrade to the Core i7-5930K anyway.

No, cause you just spent all your money on a triple GPU setup ^^

I would love something like this for my next build! Get one of these in a little mATX box that can only fit one GPU and you would never miss the extra PCIe lanes. If Intel is going to continue focusing on performance per watt instead of increasing raw horsepower then the only way up will be to go after CPUs with more cores anyways.

I was planning to have the 4930k in my next computer for the coming year, but I think I'll throw this 5820 in instead^^ I want a CPU with 6 cores and HT, I figure it would last me like the next 5-7 years, with overclocking capability.

And should games start being ported with greater CPU requirements from consoles threading, having 6 actual cores with 12 threads available should really help. I'm just not sure I'm sold on the DDR4... great speeds and bandwidth, but horrible timings. Might be able to be overclocked though... maybe... Will this CPU support quad channel memory like the 4930?

So those 12 PCIe lanes cost an extra $200.
This is already absurdly expensive hardware, considering how well the mainstream stuff performs. If you want to get the most for your money, you aren't looking at triple GPU setups anyway.

im actually kinda surprised a vendor hasn't done a DDR3 x99 board. with most OC kits you'll get the same bandwidth and tighter timings, so the only real benefit comes down to voltage, but even then there's a few low-voltage DDR3 kits out there and if you're going multi-GPU, 6core, quad-channel memory, something tells me you're not going to flip out over 0.45v. sure there's x79 boards but are any of them reporting haswell-E support?

It's not about mutli GPU setups, some might need to install some other PCIe cards and when that is installed, does your PCIe lanes for your GPU still get reduced down to say from x16 to x8?

This is a stupid move , I was expecting the new chips to have 64 lanes for quad 16x pcie , or at least the X version to be 64 lanes m and the rest 40 lanes.

And we ended up with a stupid 28 lanes , not even 32 lanes to give you full 16x,16x

Whos the idiot working at intel who suggested this 28 lanes crap?

And finally , I was expecting the new chip to start from 8 cores and end at 12 cores . The xeons already have 15 cores .

So the entry level 8 and 10 cores , and the x 12 cores . With the price tag of , $400,600,1000.

shame on you AMD for letting intel steal our money for nothing new . We had 6 cores with 40 lanes for yeaaaaaaars , this new generation just offered ddr4 thats it .

The reason should been , six cores are years old now and we should price the 8 cores 600$ and the X be 12 cores for 1000$. Intel are greedy.

fuckin hit the nail on the head. Intel was always greedy. I think we all knew this but they have solidified there lead for so many years, now they can chill and take our money.

I am on sandy bridge-e. Was thinking of going with haswell but it looks like I am holding off for more.

I second this. Pricing the same, 6/12 8/16 12/24(or 10/20) cores instead of the way it is now.

Conservative stock clocks may indicate loads of overclocking headroom, to be optimistic about it. The Devil's Canyon i7-4790K comes stock at a relatively impressive 4 GHz, but that's basically a factory overclock.

If you are able to afford THREE gpu's I don't think you would be buying the low end 5820 in the first place!
You would want the fastest cpu you can get stock then over clock it to ensure there would be no cpu bottlenecking. I think the 5930k will be the sweet spot as it was for Sandy-E with the 3930k I have now.
Depending on how good this 5960x overclocks with those 8 cores, I may be tempted to go all out, But usually the more cores you add the less overclocks you are going to get.
Would love to hit at least 4ghz oc on that 5960x would be worth an upgrade along with the M.2 port for 1gb/s ssd's. ddr 4 needs to improve on the timings a little though, speed is already fast enough just needs to bring the cas latency down a bit more before I really get interested.

nobody is whining about the 140W TDP of a six core CPU. OC those CPUs @ 4,3 -4,4 GHz and you get very close to 200W TDP ^^. I can remember very whel the hype that was made when AMD launched a 5 GHz CPU (8 core) with 220W TDP ^^. Shame :D
