I knew this day would come I promised I wouldn't do this *sniff*


another awesome thing I can't afford 



When will the i7 be released? I have read october or november, that sound about right? If so...awesome. Thanks for the input.




If you are an early adopter with lots of money to spare during tough
economic times, this is just for you. Otherwise, don't bother. I am
damn sure that within one month of the core i7 official launch, prices
will be way lower, and more mobo options will be available. If you wait
longer, more issues may be kinked out by the time you buy it. Now, you
could get a Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83ghz cpu w/ 12MB cache for $300, and
you could get a gigabyte ga-ep45-ds3l motherboard for only a hundred
dollars!! This seems to make more since and is a better bang for the
buck than those core i7's.

 I got burned with Prescott when I got my new P4 3.0 Ghz in the 90nm flavor... I will wait to see what the "must have this" people say after a few months of service.

Good news is that the prices on all Penryn parts should (theoretically) lower in price. The Q93XX, Q94XX, and the Q95XX would have a decent price drop, and making these systems even more affordable.



Maybe when some more performance marks come out.  If it was at least 60% faster then my E6700 Then maybe.

 Otherwise umm No.
