The tea leaves suggest next year will bring significant new products from Intel and AMD in the desktop CPU space. As we start getting ready for testing these next-generation CPUs, we want to get an idea of the age of the Intel chips that power our readers' main PCs.
The performance of Sandy Bridge and its Ivy Bridge follow-up, along with the less-robust performance increases offered in subsequent generations of Intel processors, have likely allowed a number of our readers to invest their hardware budgets into other components like adaptive-refresh-rate monitors, next-generation storage devices, or higher-end graphics cards.
Have you stuck with an older Intel chip in favor of newer components elsewhere in your rig, or have you recently built a brand-new PC with all the trimmings? Let us know what generation of Intel CPU powers your main PC using the poll options below.
