With the release of Xbox One and the PS4, it seems that the specs for games have actually taken a reasonable jump in the last 6 to 8 months. Since these systsms have more cores do you think we'll see games on the PC side move to the more professional end of the intel spectrum or is a HT i7 all one is ever going to need? For ex the specs in Watch Dogs recommend a i7 3770 (I have a 3770K in my PC) but in the next year or so should I be thinking about heading to Broadwell-E or would I be better off with Skylake(late 2015) processor? I know one ot those will support PCI-E 4.0 but that won't most likely be viable for anything other than m.2/PCI-E SSD until 2016 or 2017.
If anyone here programs applications as well i'm curious on your thoughts, as I'm thinking about trying my hand in that arena.
