So is Maxwell actually going to be a signifcant boost?

Or will it basically provide a typical "released half a year after the last wave of tech" boost like the R9 series?

Also, do we actually have any idea when Intel is going to release a series with a significant boost? Sandy --> Ivy --> Haswell have basically been baby steps.

His magic notebook can add adjectives to pre-existing objects, so he can take an ordinary Haswell and make it a Fast Powerful Supercharged Haswell which should be a significant boost.

For Intel I'm pretty sure next year is just a rehash of Haswell. I don't think it was supposed to be though. 2015 will be the next big Intel processor.

I thought that next year was when they changed architectures, and went to a smaller size.

Assuming you're talking about Intel -- they don't do that. Intel's "Tick Tock" pattern is die shrink one year, then new microarchitecture the next.
Haswell this year was a "tock", next year will be Broadwell, which is a die shrink of Haswell, then the next year should be a new architecture, Skylake.

Next year is Haswell Stepping 2, Broadwell was either delayed or a side project

Well, is Broadwell actually supposed to be a real jump though? I mean, Sandy/Ivy to Haswell is pretty unspectacular.

It doesn't have to be when the competition is lagging so far behind. Save the big jumps for when/if sales start to drop.

1. I would hope not, since they already did that with the GTX 7XX series.

2. When AMD becomes a threat.

They need to team up with Geico and put Maxwell the pig all over it.

So fast it makes you go "WEEE!"
