I thought we'd all be in the 5 GHz Club by now, along with those flying cars we were supposed to get.

...pending.

If it wasn't for the price tag that thing might be something to have. Have to see preformance on it before id be willing to drop that kind of cash.

My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630

it would be nice to have...but the price is really too much! Anyone know if it will run on the same socket? I believe it's possible..because it shares the same architecture of piledriver

Honestly, i hope it doesn't run the same socket. To take a bigger jump it'll need to upgrade that, potentially. But who knows? If it is, they may see some good increases in some aspects and nominal in others.

Yeah, i pretty much agree with everyone else. This would be awesome if not for the price. A non OCed CPU at ghz would be awesome! I hop the rumors are true, but i also hope the price is lower than the rumor states.
