    That's what it seems like. I would consider selling my current mobo/cpu if AMD jumps in the market with a new lineup that gets awesome benchs.

    Interesting they aren't going to keep on making 65nm quad cores while the roll out 45nm quad cores.

    It doesn't say that - they are only dropping the QX6700 according to the article. They will still be producing the Q6600, Q6700, QX6800 and QX6850 on 65nm

    Apart from the unlocked multiplier, the Q6700 makes the QX6700 a bit of an expensive indulgence anyway...........
