Haswell is expected to come out next year around the second half...or it was quarter. Doesn't matter because that's already rather late. Haswell is also a new socket (LGA1150) so there's no point in future proofing because Intel is basically switching sockets every single time to milk some more money out of you, whether they get the money or not. Performance jumps will be rather small so they'll probably seem insignificant under regular use. I obviously won't be using integrated graphics so that doesn't matter to me, unless I think about getting a notebook (which I'm not as of now).

 

Haswell has the possibility of performing worse than Ivy Bridge at the cost of efficiency. Haswell is reverting back to a flat transistor without the fins in their "3D transistor" that's currently being used in Ivy Bridge, so the performance might drop, even if they can fit more transistors onto the die. So I don't expect much from Haswell. If Haswell does well and I feel the need to upgrade, I might have some spare cash or borrow some from my parents and then sell my motherboard and processor (and maybe heatsink) and buy one for LGA1150. Only Haswell-EP supports DDR4 anyways (I think EP is their server and workstation parts, so basically, Xeon).

I'm gonna quote a Dutch proverb here, Haibu-nyan

"Van uitstel komt afstel"

Or, loosely translated, "Postponement will result in cancellation"

I didn't say I was going to postpone...I don't see much of a reason to wait for Haswell. I'm going to go with Ivy Bridge (Vishera probably won't be that impressive). Just waiting for Black Friday sales, or any sale where I can get a good price and save as much money as I can.

Just about, except it won't be something like 15% increases like the current plan from Bulldozer to Piledriver to whatever's next. It'll be at a much smaller level, obviously. So it isn't worth waiting for.

 

I don't know why you guys keep on getting the idea that I'm waiting for another release. I'm waiting for sales to save some money, even if it's just a small amount. I've waited for 2-4 years already (I had the idea in 5th grade...I think I read on OCN during the summer between 5th and 6th grade and then just joined sort of recently...okay, one year isn't that recent...) and I'm tired of waiting. At first I was going all "Nehalem! i5-X60" (one of the i5 models) and then Sandy Bridge came and I thought about waiting and now I'm at Ivy Bridge, I'm sick and tired of waiting, but that's my own fault.

 

That and my mother didn't trust me and thinks it's a bad idea, not that I care.

Will do...

 

What's the closest sale with decent prices? Columbus day (I feel like newegg had one...)? Or do I wait for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and...something with Tuesday sometimes...? I go no later than that because I need a heater for my room (the computer). tongue.gif

Because the only thing you are saving money on is a SSD and GPU if you buy in the fall.
