....for Nehalem. Native quad cores, with octo cores and with improved hyperthreading for a possible 16 threaded machine. These processors are nice for those who need servers (the Xeon's) but I'd wait for the next gen, as are the majority of consumers.

Nerd who wouldn't want Six cores in their rig? Imagine a SkullTrail rig with two of these puppies but it won't ever happen. Damn what a waste..

 

I don't care if a core or two go unused I'll find something to occupy them.

hell, I can find uses for 2 extra cores, like compiling code or 3d renderings. Not everyone uses their computers only for gaming.
