New Intel Processors and Nvidia 800 series.

Anyone have a good guess on when we'll be able to buy them? I tried googling release dates but couldn't find much.

Reason I ask is I'm looking to upgrade sometime here before the year is over.

I don't want to upgrade to a 780 and then in two months have the 880 come out.

Any info is appreciated thanks!

October for 880

Where was it announced for October? Just wondering because I am about to buy a GPU in a few days and it might be worth it to hold off if it has been officially announced for OCT.

Thanks for the info. I'm gonna do some research on the Intel processors hoping for a big improvement from my I5 2500K

End of this month for Haswell-E (note that you're gonna be spending more just because of DDR4), Q2 2015 for desktop Broadwell, though if you're on SB I'd still be recommending you hold off upgrading for a bit longer unless your CPU/motherboard are on the verge of failure somehow

And, yeah, sometime between now and December for 800-series (reference cards first, then aftermarket cooling about a month later)

How much of a speed boost is expect from the new Nvidia and Intel lines?
