It's official: Intel will launch the Core i7 processor, the first desktop chip to be based on its 'Nehalem' architecture, on 17 November. i7 - 17. Geddit??!!?? You can read Register Hardware's full Core i7 review here. The initial roll-out will centre, as expected, on three desktops CPUs: the 920, 940 and 965 Extreme. All …
These chips are looking very good
Especially since it seems even the i7 920 will overclock to 4ghz without any trouble, all I need now is for some cheap X58 boards to come out as there is no way I'm paying £280 for one as well as a triple channel DDR3 kit.
Vorsprung durch AITechnIQ .... VWwwAI .... PanameRama Vistas with NEUKlearer HyperVision.
I wonder who will be first with a laptop InterNetional Space Station GUI. ..... 42 Commend ControlLed CyberSpace to Command.
36 PCI-Express ports?
But will it run Crysis?
With the way Vista hogs memory, most people will be happy if it runs Minesweeper.
Tux - because the way of the future lies in the hands of The Great Penguin!
I'll wait until they upgrade it to 4-channel memory...
...and DDR3-1600 (Sandy Bridge?) Then it will truly kick ass.
I don't know, but as a geek, three channels just doesn't seem right to me. I'll wait until we start dealing in powers of 2 again. :)

With a title like that it could only be amanfromMars.
Welcome back after yesterday's slip into sense.
with a bit of luck, when this launches the price of current Intel CPUs will stop climbing. This is getting ridiculous.
