IIRC from reading the presser, they've slowed it down for now, a 2-3 year cadence instead of 1-2. From other articles I've read on the web there appear to be several initiatives that Intel and others have been investigating for some years that may be about to bear fruit. Advances in understanding nanotechnology, for instance carbon nanotubes + conductivity, and biotechnology, programmable DNA, are still somewhat futuristic, but remember as well that PCM is about to roll out by several industry leaders including Intel. I wouldn't be surprised it the tick-tock thing will be replaced with a completely different paragdigm shift requiring us to think in terms of the next new bacteria's genome or the next atomic alloy combo.

Interesting times my friend.

I've been trying to find a reason to justify upgrading my 2500k and i was going to do it with the next big release (hoping for 12 or 10nm) but this doesn't make that look good...

There is an average of 25% difference between sandybridge amd skylake (anandtech) already. I'd imagine that the next Gen will be worth it even more.

Indeed. So the IPC improvement of about 25% and then just the capabilities/additional features that are available in newer tech (usb3/3.1, additional pci-e lanes depending on chipset, memory platform, etc).

That is the problem newer tech is going to be harder to come by, it's going to take much more time to come up with something improved.:(
