http://wccftech.com/intel-broadwell-e-core-i7-6950x-price/ In summary: New $1500, decacore flagship, with 3 GHz base clocks. $999 price point changes from 3 GHz to 3.2 GHz $550 price point changes from 3.5 GHz to 3.6 GHz $390 price point changes from 3.3 GHz to 3.4 GHz Everything else pretty much the same; no Crystal Well support Kinda nice to have an option for 10 cores with the same clocks as 8 cores was previously but it certainly comes at a price premium. Based on Broadwell (without Crystal Well) vs Haswell I wouldn't expect a significant IPC increase for most workflows, so it's kind of "meh"... definitely doesn't seem like it'd be worth upgrading to from Haswell-E. I was hoping they'd change the midrange from 6 to 8 cores this generation to make it a more interesting upgrade, but oh well. Maybe next gen?
