I hear windows 7 is, so hopefully we get some multi-core games in next year.

I'm not so confident about windows 7 and direct 11 and then real multi-core games.
First see, then believe it!

But back to topic, i7, I think this new cpu will surprise us all (At least, I hope so)

340 aint bad at all....although i'll bet that'll be the price for multiple orders of 100 or so

pretty bad price difference between the 3....although i'll bet ppl will just buy that 920 instead of blowing 300 more for the 940...gotta love intels numbers game lol

anyways its a funny thought sometimes as even a dual core will outperform a quad core in certain games

anyways i'll wait a month or so for those to mature and upgrade from my e6850 to something better

i'm not that surprised to see that the i7 is just a tad faster than a core 2 extreme

thanks for the links :)

Well...Let's hope that it drives the Extremes down into a reasonable price range... I certainly don't have the cash to build a new system any time soon...

Except thats the point of Nehalem being able to dynamically disable cores and OC according to the new TDP of running only dual core.

But that will scratch out high performing ram sticks.

Just for what do you need Extreme model?
Only difference is unlocked multiplier and much higher price tag!
Even overclocking by rising FSB instead of multiplier should be more more beneficial because it increases available bandwidth for data transfer between CPU and everything else.


Currently I don't see much sense to wait Nehalem for gaming PC because its advantages are elsewhere.
Also remember that you need really expensive motherboard and lot more expensive memories for Nehalem. Yorkfields run fast and overclock well on very affordable P45 motherboards and DDR2 is very cheap. Saved money would give much more gaming benefit next time when new graphic cards come out.

I myself ordered P5Q Deluxe, Q9550 and 4GB 1066 DDR2 kit yesterday. (and four 640GB WD Caviar Blacks for RAID10)
To think of it pretty much all major parts have been replaced recently/will be replaced...
Got new case three weeks ago and have done some mods to it while deciding do I keep old dual core yet or get Yorkfield... changed Lenovo L220x to H-IPS paneled LG W2600HP week ago.
Well... I'll be retaining BenQ and LiteOn DVD-writers (although LG's Blu-ray writer/HD-DVD reader would be nice), original serie X-Fi with I/O panel, 8800GTS 512, 3ware 9650SE-8LPML+2x WD5000AAKS and PSU.

That's what I'm saying. No one needs an Extreme model, but hey, if you could get one for nearly the same price as a Q9xxx, why wouldn't you? Sure an unlocked multiplier doesn't mean much...but a big ole e-peen to go with it sure does!;P

the only good thing i see about the 775 => i7 transition is not having to choose between a sli board or a crossfire board

thinking about keeping my core 2 for now but want a better board

well for my part i only have an i5 760 2.8 ghz but if i go on everest and stard making some test, my i5 760 is a little bit less than a core 2 extreme qx9650 (25 000 vs 24 000 )
and better than a qx6750

and what is the price of a i5 760: its only 265 $ cash
and what the price of a core 2 extreme qx9650 :its only 1100 +++ $

so what you gonna chose,,,, a i5 who do the same job as an core 2 extreme qx9650... who will pay 750 $+++ for the same performance.... humk......
