It's here, folks. A new generation of Intel Core processor. The Haswell architecture is set to shape the PC industry for years to come, but we've had our say, so let's now hear it from you, the readers: what's your take on Intel's latest and greatest?

Have you skipped previous generations in anticipation of what Haswell may have to offer? And if so, has the new micro-architecture lived up to expectations? Or is your current platform continuing to serve you so well that you see no obvious reason to upgrade?

Whether your an Intel Fellow or an AMD kinda guy, we're putting the question to you. So let's hear it: will you be upgrading to Haswell? Let us know using the comments below.

Nope, technically a downgrade, but I was considering one if they were decent overclockers. Waiting for IB-E really.
I haven't upgraded since my Phenom II X6. I've never come close to needing any more power, not once.

I would consider upgrading my laptop however, as Haswell promises something useful there.
considering I only got my 3570K in January, unless I win the lottery or something I highly doubt it
Nop. My 4.8GHz 2500K is still doing just fine, it will probably last me until Broadwell and hopefully until Skylake.
That's the plan, going from C2D E8400 to Haswell. Not much of a step up I suppose. :P I might wait a few weeks to see how they overclock. If they don't look so good I'll pick up a second hand 3570K and board.
