just ran across these two blurbs that i thought might interest some of you:
the first one confirms something i and many, many others have speculated for a long time intel was going to do: it's extending the new 256bit avx instruction set to 512bit for future processors.
the second claims that intel is preparing to launch an inexpensive, by its standards, 6 core SB-E processor, with an unlocked multiplier and HT. depending on the cost this might be a very interesting to some looking to upgrade from an older setup.

The Knights are landing in Xeon (server) family. This would be biggest advantage for HEVC streaming. However Broadwell is due next year on comsumer PCs claimed to have 40% better graphics capabilitity. I will skip braodwell and think of update at the time of Skylake (with Moon River).
