Question

Posted

With CES 2014 right around the corner. I was just wondering if I should wait to buy some computer parts. I am wanting to buy either a Intel or AMD processor and also a SSD hard drive. 

 

I know they will announce new products. So I'm not sure how fast they do price cuts. Help me out here please.

yes its in early jan, so wait for announcements and then buy someone you like in Feb if you want to, That would be a wise thing to do. GL

SATA 3.1, USB 3.1, Intel Broadwell, AMD APU with Steamroller cores.

New SSDs with might be Samsung 3D NAND tech which improves write cycles. More 4k mainstream monitors which will drive competition to make more customer pocket friendly stuff.

 

Very much excited stuff to popup.

I thought CES was more about Consumer Electronics, i.e BluRay Players, Games Consoles, Fancy Smart Fridges, Robot Lawnmowers etc? Maybe I am wrong.

Wait until you need it, then you'll always get the best stuff.

 

Although, CPU roadmaps are released well in advance, so unless there's something in particular you're waiting for, I don't think anything at CES will be a surprise.

Where did you see that? Latest news I can find is 2nd half of 2014. http://www.pcworld.com/article/2056183/pcs-using-intels-broadwell-processor-expected-in-second-half-of-2014.html

 

On AMD's side, Kaveri should be out early 2014, but if you use a discrete GPU it's not too interesting. With custom R9 290s starting to appear (and kicking ass) now is a great time to buy I think.

Didn't they say they weren't gonna release Broadwell to the public? Only using them for tablets and atom processors?

The article I was looking at was from 2 days earlier:

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/broadwell-haswell-delay-intel-defect-density,24693.html

 

I see... basically the article you were looking at is saying that even though manufacturing begins in Q1 2014, that actual PCs won't hit market until Q2. I guess mine is just talking about manufacturing in Q1?

Think that was just some unsubstantiated report by a random website, but there are listed known desktop packages already: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broadwell_(microarchitecture)

 

EDIT: looks like the initial report was probably triggered by the fact that Intel is largely moving to BGA packages for most processor lines. So they probably just mistook BGA packaging to mean only mobile/tablet processors.
