    6 to 8 cores suggests to me that the entry level 5000 series Haswell-E processor may have 6 cores. That's better then Sandy Bridge-E and Ivy Bridge-E entry level processors at 4 cores. Also if the pricing for entry level is the same as in the past then ~$300 would be a great price for a 6 core i7 processor.

    55% IPC improvement over quad cores with Haswell-E,.......that sounds lofty.

    Can we expect performance increase with m.2? Over normal sata3 ssd. So 550mbs+ current ssd's are limited by there interface.

    Get real man... linear writes? Where do you use them? 4k's are still limited around 40mb/s.... I can't see interface problems there. Just marketing rubbish.

    I don't really know what to expect for sure but one would expect to see new controllers eventually that can take advantage of some of the speedier interfaces. Thus making SSDs faster. Most people don't need these kinds of speed increases though or rather SATA 3 is plenty fast.

    For enterprise use there may be a need to push for more speed.

    I agree that it's plenty fast for 95%of everyone, but I'm one of those people that wishes that interfaces etc would be adopted faster to improve overall technology for the future...

    I think x99 will be my upgrade from x58/970 :D
     
    Aquinus says thanks.
