Default Will there be a quad core, highly clocked IB-E?

I might upgrade to IB-E from my i7-3820 since I already own an X79 platform. Anyone here know if there will be a quad core version of the IB-E CPU. I'm more interested in quad core performance of the IB-E since I'm mainly a gamer.

Nobody knows, and nobody will know, until at least 6 months from now.

And, by then, Haswell may be a much better gaming CPU, anyway.

So, just wait until they are actually being reviewed, because the only people that could tell you have great incentives (job and reputation) not to do so.

even if there is, the performance gains are going to be so minimal it would be hard to justify upgrading from an i7-3820

relevant benchmark:

If you are a gamer, then you should go LGA1150 with Haswell.

I guarantee you that for games a quad haswell will beat a hexa or even octa ivy e. period. You will learn from it when it happens.

Let's see reviews and benchmarks before we go anywhere.
