I'm with you, was hoping to see an 8 Core / 16 Thread Chip (other than Xeon).
8-core, 16-thread is probably when I'll upgrade from my 970.

It indeed would have been nice to get a CPU from Intel with 8-Cores and 16 threads but I think the 6 Cores are more than enough and I don't see any game going to utilise 8 cores anytime soon. So maybe in 4 years or so.

It wasn't that long ago that LGA2011 was thought to be a dead-end after SB-E, so any news of an upgrade path for it is good news.

I heard when you set the Tessellation high enough on your pron you'll get poked in the eye by a nipple if you sit to close to the screen
