Yes because cpu is becoming less needed and the gpu is taking over most of the calculations

They'll perform similar in most games, I doubt we'll see wide spread multithreading in games that can utilize 6+ cores making Sandy Bridge E any faster than Sandy Bridge. By the time that 6 core cpu can perform better, there will surely be a new cheap alternative that out performs both of them.

You can always upgrade to ivybridge next year because it will use the same cpu socket :)
