Intel Z77, H77, Z75 and Q75 Chipsets and more Ivy Bridge CPUs Retiring Next Year

Having already planned the discontinuance of a heap of Ivy Bridge processors, Intel has this week confirmed that several supporting chipsets - the Z77, H77, Z75 and Q75, will also be 'going away' in 2015. According to Intel's product change notification the four LGA1155 desktop chipsets will be available for ordering until January 23rd, 2015 and will continue shipping until July 10th.

An identical schedule was also announced for seven Ivy Bridge-based mobile processors, the Celeron 1020M, 1005M, 1000M, 1037U, 1017U, 1007U and 1019Y.

I'm still on Intel P67 :) with no plans to upgrade any time soon. Most likely my next chipset will be for Skylake/DDR4. I'm doubtful Broadwell will bring a serious performance upgrade.

I'm waiting on Skylake in 2015 too and if there's not enough performance increase then I'll wait another year for 10 nm Cannonlake. I see no reason to be in a hurry as I only use my rig for gaming. If games require more grunt than my i5 3570k can give then I'll just OC it and wait.
