    Intel plans to further strengthen its leadership by releasing 1333MHz FSB Kentsfield Quad-Core processors. The new Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 processor will operate at 3.00GHz/1333MHz FSB with 2x4MB L2 cache and 130W TDP. Coupled with the upcoming X38 chipset, Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 will provide the most powerful Core 2 platform up to date. The QX6850 is set to cost US$999 when released. At the same time the QX6800 CPUs will cost US$999 as well.

    ummm why are the 2.93 1066 and 3ghz 1333 the same price? seems odd being the extra fsb shouls give a decent boost in performance.

    No doubt, I'm waiting unitl after Christmas to buy my next system. I would like to see some cpu's that could possibly run 3dmark on thier own and run it well, or something like that. I would love to see IBM come into the consumer market with some kind of cell chip. This is the lull before the storm, cpu's are going to be making a huge jump in performance before 2007 is over.

    well I might get one to. the Q6600 when they get that low and just OC it and save $733 over the C2E QX6850 :D

    but does anyone know when Intels going to change there socket size? cuz I would wait and just get the last cpus for the 775 socket or are they going to be using it for a while I hope :p

    I dont think games will benefit from quad core much for a while, beside taking care of so extra apps.. however if you want to run a virus scan or convert a movie at the same time of your gaming it will help.:) $266 is what distributors will pay right?

    These things are getting hot again like the P4's. Time for Intel to pull out a new power management trick and go, again, to reduced fab size, and again, to lower Vcc. (ULV)

    I love the QX6850 being the same price as the QX6800. More FSB and a slight bump in speed for the same price. ::rofl:: I suspect AMDs to be priced better and offer better performance. But hell, I'm a fan of AMD! :)

    Im waiting for AMDs comeback. They've got bring out somthing big to persuade me to drop my Core 2 Duo.

    My plan for next year is to get a Q6600 and some huge piece of cooling and OC it to hell.

    Woah. a quad for ~~$250 by Q3... wow. i could actually afford something like that.....
    amd's going to be in a real price squeeze w/ intel's quads once barcelona releases. but then again, if barcelona kicks ass, it could be a moot point.
