Me too. I'm itching to upgrade my entire computer so I can use things like M.2 to have a smaller case. I can't justify paying $400 for a new Intel CPU/Mobo that's not much faster than my 2500K @ 4.5GHz.
I've always bought Intel, but I'm really annoyed with them lately. I feel like we're not seeing much improvement from them because they have no reason to improve, and thus we're getting these minuscule 0%-5% performance improvements with each new release... I wouldn't be surprised if Intel is suddenly able to improve 25% after Zen is released.
