Intel's first quad-core processor will be released on November 14th 2006.
yea for US maybe, dont expect it in europe until 2010
Its more expensive and not better for games.
Plus, its the first Quad-Core series. Wouldnt u want to buy the LAST Dual-Core instead of the first Quad-Core?
It's better for multi-tasking. They even said that it wouldn't show improvement in games...yet, but that'll change soon. Some people don't always have games in mind. If it overclocks like hell I would get it for Christmas.
I doubt Vista or any program would use 4 cores for anything.
By the time that there is a significant difference in games while playing with 4 cores than 2 (if that will ever happen), the Quad-Cores will not cost more then the the Dual-Cores.
But hey, if they release a 300-400$ Quad-Core by spring ill buy it instead of the E6600 i was going to buy.
I'm sure in the near future they'll use the Quad-Cores potential. If you multi-task a lot, this Quad-Core will do better than a Core 2 Duo.
look at this then-
look for other alan wake vids on you tube.running on an intel quad core with nvidia graphics.
someone says this EVERY time multi-core CPUs are talked about. It doesnt actually matter if programmes are written to utilise multiple threads or cores, your average PC will be running about 30+ processes at any one time, so the very fact that multiple cores are present means multitasking performance will be improved anyway.
Yes, but you have 1/4^2 chance of good overclocking Hope I got my math straight, LOL
