I would say about 25% because if my AMD had 3.0 I would be scoring well in the 2300's with that 970 i am barley near breaking 2000 with that set up which is pretty sad

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1

The last thing I was holding off on for a PC build was a Broadwell. Now we have Skylake.
So is Broadwell Notebook focused and SkyLake PC Desktop focused?
It appears to me that if you need to build a desktop in the near future you're stuck with (hot-temp) Haswell. It confuses me at bit.

Broadwell is mobile-focused, but may have a couple of so-called desktop versions, sooner or later. At least they will allegedly be socket 1150. I think a few laptops (or notebooks?) are already being sold.

Skylake will be a broader line, 35 watt to 95 watt, mobile and desktop, dual core and quad core, K and non-K, with at least 2 variants of integrated graphics. The roadmap is clouded. It's possible the K models may not be out till 2016, but it's all speculation. I think most and possibly all will use either DDR3 or DDR4. The first Skylakes to be released will allegedly be desktop models. Socket 1151.
