Then i see there's no point to buy a desktop Broadwell. Must why wait for half a year more to get a Skylake.
That's total nonsense. Broadwell doesn't necessary imply enthusiast desktop versions.

Am I the only person who thinks the images look like they were made with MS Paint? It doesn't look like something Intel would typically release, looks too amateurish imho.

Look at the first image. "Broadwell K SKUs" is clearly marked.

I think what the OP is missing is that the roadmap indicates it will be 6 months between when Skylake is released and when the enthusiast Skylake "K" chips are released. So if you want an unlocked chip, it will still be a year after Broadwell "K" is released before you can get a Skylake "K". It makes buying Broadwell "K" a bit more worthwhile, albeit only due to an artificially imposed delay.

You can get 14c with HW-E ... If you want more cores Xeons always have them waiting...
It will be happening. 14nm can host as many cores as the tech evolves.

I've been a bit out of the loop, is there any news on the Xeon E5-2699 v3? If it's unlocked...

Who'm I kidding, I'll probably upgrade anyway.

I like how everyone's here having intelligent discussions about the new chips and I'm just sitting here thinking "I probably couldn't afford them therefore these are all stupid."

I was pleasantly surprised by a lower end Bay Trail-powered laptop at work though. Seems like Intel is making some progress. The tick-tock cycle seems to be a good one and these tocks (refreshes) are still important. If I'm not mistaken, it goes new architecture, die shrink, new architecture, die shrink. The refreshes might seem like they don't make much progress performance wise, but they are important.
