I purchased 2600k recently, which turned out to be defect so I had to wait a month to get a full refund.

I am not so much eager to get the computer upgrade, as waiting kinda tired me out.

I normally buy the very best CPU I could afford, and use it for 5,6 years without upgrading.

Do you know the normal development cycle of Intel product lines? How long would it be before they come out upper generation CPU?

Your advices will be invaluable to me. Thank you!

Sandy Bridge E will be coming out around October of this year.

Ivy Bridge will be coming out around April 2012.

Both of those would be a good step up from the 2600K.

Could you tell me the price range of Sandy Bridge Extreme and its expected performance, roughly speaking?

There will be three Sandy Bridge Enthusiast CPUs initially, and they will likely cost $400, $700, and $1000.

Ivy Bridge won't be that much better -- Intel expects it to be about 20% faster than current Sandy Bridge. March-April is the new release target.

There's going to be a new cpu and new motherboard socket every 6 months.

Pucker up.
