Yes, there will be new 7 series coming soon. According to latest leaks, the i5-7600k will not bring significant boost to performance compared to 6600k, and the price should be around the same of the 6600k when it launched. So if you already have i5-6600k I don't think its worth upgrading, but if you use older (like 2,3 series) it will be a good jump in performance.

well... I just bought a 6600k 4 minutes ago. I heard that the performance boost will only be the higher clocks. (3.8 normal clock for the 7600k) so i thought why wait.... maybe it was stupid... ;( was it stupid?

It depends on what you define a good jump in performance as. I wouldn't call the 1% IPC increase and 10% increase in clock speed a good increase, that is about the norm for the next generation intel processors. If there was a 15+% IPC increase, then I would say it is a good improvement. So I would say it might finally be worth going from sandybridge to kabylake (the newer architectures I wouldn't bother unless you want things like native NVMe or USB 3.1 support)

It's a small boost in performance vs like a Sklyake CPU - so I'd honestly choose whichever one is cheaper and especially if you plan on overclocking.

I would take Kaby Lake over Skylake if I am overclocking for maximum performance. HOWEVER, for maximum OVERCLOCKS, that is a different story.

Yes, there will be a Kaby Lake i5 CPU (in fact, multiple Kaby Lake CPUs), and the top dog (unlocked i5-7600K) is estimated to cost around 230-240$ USD.

Any time. Also, keep a close watch on the pricings if you do not need all the parts at one time, as you could save even 20$ USD. Hey, 20$ USD can buy you lots of snacks!

Yes, Kaby Lake will include the same i3, i5, i7 series as Intel Core processors always have since Nehalem.

Nehalem to sandy was a big jump, unlike the ones which followed

I can imagine. The older Intel releases just seemed to be more significant.

Probably because for the most part they were (with the exception of the pentium 4 which was a massive flop and the issues that the pentium 3 had with the top end models)
