    They HAVE to do it that cheap otherwise (given that it isnt faster than a good Core 2), no one would take up s1366 but stick with s775. Look at the QPI bandwidth on the EE edition. They are choking the regular, or it is limited to 2 channel not 3 channel DDR3, dispite what the memory controller info says.

    You can expect the 2.66GHz 920 to be around $315 when it's released. More than reasonable - especially to all those who haven't caved for a Q9450 yet :rolleyes:


    As for the other two, I have no idea. I just hope I won't be paying over $1100 for the Extreme Edition

    I just hope the boards come cheap, and the budget cpu (920) clocks nicely and is very cheap.

    Well since Intel decided to bring the mem controller inside,It will be same as hard as AMD for Intel to OC now.Aint it?

    Considering that if you want to take full advantage of the technology you are going to have to use triple channel memory, it's not going to be cheap, ddr3 is still expensive.

    But that is what I am waiting for to upgrade, so will see what happens.

    That 920 is a winner for me. I want it now. Finally to replace my AGING single core.

    If they can OC and they show considerable gaming performance increase I might consider the 920 but right now I really dont see the need to upgrade my cpu.

    I hate how they killed high speed ddr3

    no more ddr3 2000

    I bet the next step is 2 add the chipset on the cpu.

    This meaning what? Referring to the vdimm vcore link? I don't buy it. The verdict is still out on oc'ing. Hopefully we'll get some full tests soon, even though I won't be getting this for some time........

    Unless it comes with an unlocked multi.

    It seems like that may have to be the case. From early reports qpi can't be taken above it's default 133 clock and remain stable. So, w/ a locked mulit, this would mean virtually no oc at all, and I don't think intel would be that dumb (although I guess I don't really know). Also, there seem to be other advantages of the extreme chip besides the multi this time, namely the faster bandwidth on the qpi. Also, turbo mode, in which one or more cores turn off to oc the others, would require some sort of multi changing I would think to derive higher clock speeds. So, this is going to be a little different methinks........

    I think i will pass on Nehalem or Icore7 and go with Deneb, just for the fact that I'm an AMD kinda guy :)
