SB-E was already one generation behind IV, and now it’s two generations behind. And now, we’re not likely to see an IV-E until Q1 2014 or super late 2013… those who want to buy high-end NOW just have to inconvenience themselves or pick a product that’s not “perfect”.

The ‘perfect’ solution will be when the E variant is released, which will just so happen to cost $800+. You know, for those that need everything in life. Me on the other hand, the instruction sets are more valuable than overclocking. I haven’t OC’d a chip in years, there is almost no need to these days, as the number of applications supporting GPGPUs increases by the month – well, the apps I’m likely to use. Just a shame so many devs still use single thread apps.

Despite the fact that I tend to love Intel’s offerings, moves like this just baffle me, but more so is the fact that it removes features from its K processors, like VT-d and TSX. There’s just no such thing as a “perfect” solution. You can buy a non-K and lack overclocking, or a K and have overclocking but lack those enterprise-esque features. Or, you could go with Sandy Bridge-E, which offers a couple of sweet perks but lacks two generations’ worth of architecture enhancements. Just ugh.
