My System Specs

The 15-20% jump is nothing new. That has been on AMD's "road map" for a while now. Even with the magical improvements on Steamroller, where some claims have been made of 50% improvement (which would be great), as a result of the architectural improvements; there are two factors that influence enthusiasts' decisions - real-world performance and price. Unless you have some actual reason to care for price-per-watt performance (and alike) BS metrics, all that does is just there to muddy the waters. Vishera is not going to be anything earth shattering. And by the time Steamroller, rollers around, you will most likely need a new motherboard due to a new socket - would be nice if not.
