Sell the 6-core @ 2.8Ghz for $380 and I'll buy it. TDP of 130W is crazy... I guess the lower clocked versions will be less? I sure wish I had an operating system that would take advantage of all 12 threads natively... *sigh*

Yeah, but he can probably get 2K for a kidney.

I'm sure one of these CPUs will be the price of my entire rig.. maybe double

I'll pass and wait for software to catch up with my triple core

You know what would be better than 6-core CPU's? Dual or Triple Socket Motherboards that could support overclocking. I would rather have three 2-core CPU's that can be overclocked to 4.2 GHz than one 6-core CPU at stock 3.33GHz for 1/4 the price. That would give me a hard on.

If I misinterpret your statement correctly, you want to pay 4 times the money for a three-socket dual core setup that will have the same performance as a 6 core CPU? :)

Unfortunately this will be available only as an extreme edition processor initially, and from every road map I've seen that means for at least the next six months this will be the only desktop LGA1366 32nm processor. I think Intel plans to expand and possibly release other 4/6 core processors sometime in the third quarter.

This is bad news for me and anyone else who has a reasonable budget, and had plans to build a high end system with the LGA1366 32nm processors. I don't know about anyone else but it definitely seems like Intel is starting to slack off with bringing their 32nm process to market. Lack of competition from AMD in the high end? No 32nm AMD processors for at least another year? Guess there's no real reason to rush... sucks for everyone.

Hmmm, 130w thermal envelope...

Intel is crazy for some high power usage huh? P4 days here....

So what if it runs low power when idle, I'd like a CPU that doesn't require quad-rads with 1000rpm fans and its own line on my power bill.

I can use 6 cores easily.. I stress my q9550 out very fast.. all 4 cores... 6cores, gimmmmie gimmmie..And on a Vmware server esx (white box of course),, then 6 cores will definetly be an improvement over the quad core currently inplace. (single cpu's..)

hmm.

that die picture makes it look suspiciously like 2 triple core's duck taped together :p

on the same die tho, and I'm not going to make the suggestion that I know ANYTHING about how that stuff works... I assume all 6 cores share the same pool of L3 cache?

I think Intel is realizing that for them to do integrated on die graphics is a waste of money for high end CPU's, because the integrated Intel graphics are horrible compared to AMD's or Nvidia's or dare I say discrete graphics from the red and green team!!
