Intel's 4th gen processor codename: Haswell offers superior performance over the previous generation Ivybridge by up to 10% clock for clock. This astounding performance boost results in performance improvements in multi-tasking, encoding, gaming and multithreaded applications. Intel's 4th generation processor has improved PCI-Lane 3.0 bandwidth which helps further boost performance of latest generation 3 graphics cards for the ultimate gaming experience.
For overclocking enthusiasts, Intel's 4th gen CPU has improved memory overclocking support, with up to and beyond 3000MHz possible with the very best memory kits. Memory bandwidth is critically important to Haswell compared to previous generations. High frequency memory performance significantly improves encoding, gaming and benchmarking tasks.
The biggest leap in Intel's Haswell processor is the on-board graphics which is now up to 2.6x faster than previous HD4000 found in the Ivybridge CPU. What this means is these latest processors can actually play the latest games in HD with low/medium settings applied. Of course if you want to experience True HD gaming at maximum details then a dedicated graphics card is still a must.
There are two words in your vocabulary that should never meet-Game and Over. You love playing, and you love winning, so you demand unmatched performance, the ability to customize your rig, and features that put you in control of the action. With Intel technology, you step into a heart-pounding experience. Pick up your weapon, challenge your friends, and experience gaming at its best-because the only thing more amazing than Intel technology is what you'll do with it.
As a creative force and a professional, you must continually balance your vision with the deadlines of the real world. Intel technology helps you keep up with your creativity with unmatched and customizable performance, and feature's that give you full control to optimize your workflow and maximize your productivity. So keep imagining, keep creating, and take your inspiration to the limit-because the only thing more amazing than Intel technology is what you'll do with it.

The 4960X is the current high-end of Intel's desktop line, and while the single performance might a tad bit slower than the new Haswell, in heavily threaded applications it more than makes up for it. Its multithreaded performance is second to none, and its clocked high enough to be very competitive in less threaded scenarios - combined with the 2011 platform made it an ideal candidate for my workstation. I am using an SLI (2x16) and an Areca raid card (x8), and only the Socket 2011 platform can provide the PCI Express bandwidth to run all cards at their full speed. Its probably overkill if you are not hardcore gamer, and its a bit expensive if you only play games (the 4930X is cheaper, and overclocks quite well)
Also, this CPU can compile the Linux kernel in less than a minute ;)
