Although with X79 he can put in a 8 or even 10 core IB-E cpu, while on LGA 1150 (Haswell) he will be limited to 4, maaaybe 6 cores. LGA1155 is at end, maybe we will see a 3780K version.
But speaking of Haswell it has a few changes
; AVX2, TSX, improved HT/single threaded functions, IB vs SB has ~5-7fps advantage (StarCraft2), now if you add extra bits from Haswell it could be ~12fps.. But still 4core Haswell vs 8 core IB-e has no chance. Unless they make it LGA2011 compatible something like 12-14core would be nice lol
