Wait, 410 Million transistors? We're talking about the Quad-Core I suppose.

The E5420 looks good.

But the only chipset capable of 1600Mhz is X38.. seems kind of a waste.

Okay, maybe this is a silly question and shows that I haven't been keeping up to date, but what's going to be the public name for these chips when they come to desktops? Core 3?

Err....core 2 quad? Instead of core 2 duo? I mean it's almost the same thing as the current core 2's with a couple of tweaks and more cache.

Nice TDP's on those E series quad cores.
