I love my i7 920 which I am running 24 7 at 3.64 Ghz with air cooling. The performance is amazing weather it be for multitasking, Phoroshop or gaming. If the new 6 core chip does not require a new MOBO I would certainly look at it. I know that there are cheaper AMD chips but for a really modest increase in cost I can get the best performance.

wasn't it not too long ago that AMD announced they would also release a 6-core processor? Intel maybe should wait to see if it's any good first before releasing their own. because AMD will just make their version cheaper as soon as Intel releases theirs. so maybe Intel should just wait until AMD makes the first move, if they feel theirs is superior.

How come in the post there isn't a single word about that the new processor is going to be only extreme edition?
