    Intel started shipping the three new quad-core processors, we told you about here. One new mainstream Core 2 Quad Q6600 and two single processor workstation and server Xeon X3220 and X3210 processors are now available. Official pricing for the Q6600 per unit in 1,000 unit quantities is $851 with a price drop to $530 expected in Q2’2007. Online retailer ZipZoomFly currently has the Core 2 Quad Q6600 in stock for $989.99. Pricing for the Xeon X3220 is identical to the Core 2 Quad Q6600 at $851 per unit in 1,000 unit quantities with an expected price drop to $530 in Q2’2007. The lower clocked Xeon X3210 is priced at $690 per unit per 1,000 unit quantities with an expected price drop to $425 in Q2’2007.

    Nice. I believe the QuAD Core Extreme Q6700 is two C2D 6700's on one die. This should be sweet using two 6600's

    It's two E6700 dies in one CPU. Single-die quad cores will arrive later. (afaik)

    Sweet, but with the price drops coming I can't justify buying one now.
