    Intel plans to launch three quad-core processors on Monday, covering two Xeons for lower-end servers and one mainstream model, the Core 2 Quad 6600 for desktop computers. The new Core 2 Quad 6600 processor will run at 2.4GHz with 1066MHz FSB. Also set to arrive are two low-end Xeons, the 2.13GHz 3210 and 2.4GHz 3220. Both are designed for single-processor servers. The chips have 8MB cache and a 1066MHz front-side bus. Intel declined to comment the story, but the three CPUs are expected to show up at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week.

    It would be nice to have a Quad Core processor, but I do not do a lot of encoding or any other programs that would take advantage of it. Im going to pass on that and wait for the Core 2 Duo price drops to occur.

    I wish I can go to CES next week. :/

    Imagine the speed that Lancer's Vorbis encoders would attain using one of these ...

    200x, or more ... *drool* ...


    Not forgetting OptiPNG, PNGOUT, p7zip, PAQ, etc.
