Contrary to older reports, Intel will stick to the Core i7 brand identifier to sell its first consumer (client) six-core processor based on the Nehalem architecture, codenamed "Gulftown". The first offering of these socket LGA-1366 processors, is the Core i7 980X Extreme Edition. Its positioning and pricing shows that Intel will replace its current flagship desktop processor, the Core i7 975 Extreme Edition with it, and at the very same price-point of US $999 (in 1000 unit tray quantities).

A future price list also shows that the Core i7 980X Extreme Edition is slated for March 2010. A month ahead of its launch, Intel will introduce the Core i7 930, which succeeds the Core i7 920 at its price-point of $284. The Gulftown core will be manufactured on Intel's brand new 32 nm HKMG process, it features 6 processing cores with 12 threads (HyperThreading Technology), triple-channel DDR3 memory with its integrated memory controller, 6.4 GT/s QPI link to the Intel X58 Express chipset, 12 MB of L3 cache, compatibility to platforms that support the Core i7 9xx processors, and 130W TDP. The Core i7 980X Extreme Edition comes with a clock speed of 3.33 GHz, The Core i7 930 on the other hand, is a quad-core processor which runs at 2.80 GHz.

this is what i call a monster desktop cpu;without competition they'll keep the high price till we see the amd response;anyway this Hi+K metal gate transistor seems to have small leakage if they managed to keep the tdp at 130w

Uh..even with competition, Intel sold $1000 processors (Pentium Extreme Edition), AMD sold $1000 processors when it was really competitive too. So competition doesn't have much of a role to play. We should be grateful Intel isn't pricing this $1500.

you're right till a point;as current cpu pricing adopted from amd their 6 core won't be more than 500$ ;back on 1000 or 1500 is the same for me ... i can't afford it... :laugh: my next cpu will be a max 300$ one no matter if is intel or amd with the best price/perf. ratio

Agreed. I would've paid the $1500, even if they did, tho. This IS my next cpu. I doubt seriously AMD will offer a 6 core at the average person's budget, so it all becomes high-end pricing anyway.

The thing I would love to see most is lower pricing on the 9550s the 65watt deal. That would be great for a lower power pc, I am kind of wanting to go that route.

1,000$?!

Fuck that. I'm getting Dual-930's. Heck, I could get Quad 930's for around the same price.

It was always going to be $1000 or more... We have known that for months, Intel stated that there was only going to be EE models. But there is going to be Xeon 6 core 12 thread in the Sub $500 range I beleive.

the i930 is definitely the star of this release... if its a 32nm quad, we are potentially looking at a ~5ghz quad with HT :D.

Why is everyone so surprised it's £1000.

How many other cpu's will be faster than this at 32nm ?

So it is an i7 and i9 does not exist...

Seeing how there is quad-cores on the i5 line up, it doesn't surprise me that Intel didn't create an i9 just for the hexacore processors.

Not likely. Looking at how long the Gulftown will be top dog, it doesn't look like Intel is preparing to release an 8 core proc between now and 2011

Damn, i was hoping the 930 was a six core, not like I need it but want it like many other enthusiasts:toast::toast:
this statement says it all...that new quad is more than just about any of us could use...the 930 is definitely the thing I'd be interested in, very power efficient I'm sure yet has 4 cores and probably overclocks ridiculously, that 6 core beast is not only expensive I can't imagine it being able to overclock all that well beyond a certain point without uber cooling...there aren't even a lot of games/apps that can use 4 cores totally nevermind 6! lol.
