We won't see any real performance increases until Haswell-E comes out and the mainstream market will follow with DDR4 in 2015. Still though, every incremental increase is more of a step ahead of AMD. All that matters to them.
Thanks PPM for the excellent info again. Wow, Haswell-E with DDR4 in 2015...that is a long time away. The world as we know it may end before then!
Ok, one more question:
Can my ASRock B75M-ITX handle any overclocking of my new Intel i7-3770k?
Or, was my choice of a "K" Intel processor all in vain?
