I don't know what i want to do, i want to get an i9 as it's such a big improvement over the i7's, but it seems like they'll only release an extreme edition ( or just one model of it), and if that's the case then i'll have to wait for the 8 cores( which are so far away), that's the damn problem with upgrading, figuring out when the right time is too get the best parts ( buying a dual core would have been a bad move imo) at least if i decide to go for the i7 in a while they should be cheaper, although i doubt by much, and the i5's have awesome performance for the price
I'd say go with the i7 but definitely wait for price drops. Intels CEO is giving a keynote at CES next year so he is sure to deliver some good news.
Yes, please release a gimped version of the i7, called it an i5, and have an excuse to keep the price of the i7 high...
i think you'll find the new cpu's can hold their on quite easily http://www.pcgameshardware....
The new i5s come VERY closein performance to the current i7 models(in some games even outperforming them) and have higher clocks. I think that is great considering they are using less power.
