The slide doesn't show the rumored 995x, so, does that means it won't be released?.

Exactly. Latest mail issue of MPC compared 2600K to top dog 990X and victories were on both sides.  To say that your Core 2 Duo is competition to either of those is just ludacris.  Don't even have to account for overclocks.

...but I wouldn't ixxx anything, rather I'd dual xeon on an EVGA SR2

the i series is in my opinion an aswer for power hungry consumers, but with its half-duplex speed what good is it. The core architecture, the 56xx xeon, is twice as wide, meaning 2x as many cores.

Why is there a 1366 with half the processors. I too belive it is over touted.

Running a Core 2 Quad at present. Does just fine on the experience index.

+1. IMO Intel has gone greedy. Instead of real innovation and improving the chipset they have been just adding fluff. I agree that they are the current performance champs and I just built a desktop using 2600k. Powerful machine but not a huge improvement over my Core 2 Duo machine. I built it for video editing and hopeful it will be lot better than C2D as it claims to be.

If that is really the case and your not just hating. There is something wrong with your setup. There is no way that you only see a minimal performance increase moving to the 2600K. This proc hexacores to shame in many benchmarks and in others is right on their heels. I would check my system if I were you.

The real question is WHY, especially when an i7 2600K gives even the 990X a run for its money.

Why not?  People will buy, and Intel will make money and have another leg up on AMD.
