Haha, congrats @tilpo!
I'm saving up for an i5 on black friday. Is there a major performance increase from sandy to ivy? Maybe there will be a killer deal on a 2500k, one can always hope.
Edit: got an E11 today, now I have portable music again!

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

I probably won't save much either because Black Friday discounts have been crappy these few years in most cases. Still, waiting for just some TDP cuts and improved igpu performance is sort of pointless. The extra few watts only equals a few cents on your power bill. A few dollars, that might be a bit more concerning but honestly, a few cents will take a very, very long time to develop into a boatload of cash.

Ivy Bridge is very efficient due to the use of 3D transistors, which are basically just transistors with fins as opposed to just a flat plane which increases surface area, consequently the amount of electrons that go through the gate at once. It runs a bit hotter but it's very efficient. Unfortunately the efficiency of Haswell will probably slightly pale in comparison to Ivy because IIRC Intel is reverting back to 2D transistors so they can develop their 3D transistors a bit more. I think they promised CPU compute performance around their Ivy Bridge counterparts with 2x the integrated GPU performance, which honestly isn't worth it except for maybe laptops. Power consumption should be lower. Haswell might be a SoC in some cases for tablets and laptops. They're focusing more on the mobile market for Haswell. Broadwell might introduce the 3D transistors again. That will probably be a worthwhile upgrade.

At the very least there should be some deals on external HDD's, which I need another of considering I have 25GB left on my 2 TB media drive...

Now that I have turned 18, my day is fulfilled.

I shall now take my leave and return to my natural dormant state for the coming 7 hours.
Good night.

Instead of sending me all the money then I go and buy multiple units?

Some sellers may or may not allow the item to be shipped to address other than billing address.

I think if we all send the money to you it might be better. Maybe you can ask for a discount for the order, since you're buying a few (or... wait, most people are on "maybe" so I guess maybe not that many?)

About time you caught up with the rest of us.

(TT-TT)

 

Then we should at least decide on a codename/name that at least I like too.

You can always cover it with something. That said, the PCB won't even be visible!

Instead of joyeux anniversaire the more popular (as in non-formal) way to say it is just bonne fete. Unless it's a French vs. Canadian thing.

Or at least replace that joyeux. Imagine people telling you "joyous anniversary!"... cause that's the literal translation xP

 

Alright, when it's panda's birthday we'll all shower him with Joyous Anniversaries...!
