Skylake-E is going to be pretty darn awesome. I think we will see 10 cores for the highest end part.Reasons I went with a i5 6600K instead of a 6700K
1. I had the itch to upgrade for a year and didn't want to wait for the 6700k. If it was released day 1, I probably would have got it.
2. I plan on moving to Skylake-E as soon as it becomes available. I would have moved to Haswell-E if I didn't read how awesome the Purley platform will be. (Damn I hate Intel for making HEDT wait 1.5 years.)
3. A 6600K OC was showing impressive results with good RAM, so the money saved on the CPU bought better RAM.
