These chips are best utilized in server environments. Gamers aren't going to find much use for this yet. How many of you utilize four cores? This won't provide the same performance increase for gamers and the average user as the Core 2 did. I imagine any performance increase for the average user and gamer will be negligible and will be overshadowed by the cheaper quad cores and dual cores.
I feel people who rush out and buy this chip for games are going to be sorely disappointed.
This chip is designed for serious multitasking, the average users and gamers need quad cores with better individual core performance before they need 4 physical cores and 4 logical cores.
Stay on topic. This thread isn't for flame wars.
All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.
