2-3 years, if that. Intel has no reason to sell them for cheap when its quad-cores are still handily beating the competition. They'll keep making people cough up the dough if they want more cores.
Wow. Very sig. Such original. So words. Wow.

Probably only when they have to e.g. better competition or games are more optimised for 6-8 cores.

I wonder what would be better, a really great 20 GHz processor one core, or a 8 core intel processor that utilized all 8 cores. Then which one would be better for gaming, if the intel one only use 2-4 cores at 50%.

Supposedly the low end Haswell E will come only in 6 core @ $350-$400.

That's a start

Yeah, Haswell E is sounding promising, provided all the rumors are true. Mobos will probably be expensive as hell though. X79 isn't too bad right now but it's extremely outdated.
