Maybe Haswel's chipset will actually catch intel up to AMD with the number of SATA3 ports and more USB3 as well.
If they had done something like that for the x79, I would have upgraded.
Not that it is a big deal to too many, but there is one distinct advantage that I noticed from X58 to IB. My Rig, Idles at 75-80W. And if I load prime up I'm lucky to hit 165.
Insane is the efficency, and for some features of the boards and others for the SSD's I use it was an upgrade for sure.

Food for thought I suppose,
