10 core Broadwell - E is out (ouch)

I was struggling on getting 8 cores or going to 10...

Intel made my choice easy. The top chip always before slipped in at the $1000 area.
A new slot has been created... $1700+ for the 10 core chip.

25% more cores and 70% more money!

Yes, it is over 80% faster then my 6 core Sandy Bridge but out of my league.

Stuggle is over... I'll settle for 8 cores.

On the positive side (sorta) as vrd and another of mine only use 8 cores
I won't be losing as much encoding speed as I thought.
