Probably not very exciting on the desktop front. Looking forward to those low TDP Haswell for laptops and tablets.

How exciting it is will be largely determined by how overclockable Haswell chips end up being. the motherboards leaked so far has been interesting at least... I might just step up from my Sandy lol

I'm just throwing a guess, but it's probably because the Dutch are responsible for a huge chunk of overseas trade, with the Port of Rotterdam being among the top 5 busiest ports in the world. Lots of stuff moving in and out, particularly between the Americas and Europe.

Intel, for example, is a U.S. company, so in the U.S. they might be more tight-lipped about their supply chains, but once a product leaves their hands for a coordinated overseas debut, well, let's just say things often get "leaked" at the supply destination. It can't be helped.

I don't see a need to upgrade from 2500k or 3570k or Fx8150. The whole platform does not bring anything special that we all already have. If you still using core2 or Phenoms go ahead and up your system for sure otherwise it is not worth it.

At that level, no, it doesn't. It does bring some interesting potential for HTPCs, mini-ITX gaming, mobile devices, and extreme overclockers, if the rumors are true.
