E5420 2.50 GHz 80W 12MB - $316

E5410 2.33 GHz 80W 12MB - $256

I think its a wast of money getting an q6600 on july 22 for $266 because Penryn price are smiliar to q6600 and preryn going to have better performance then q6600 in 4 month. you can get E5420 2.50 GHz 80W 12MB cach - $316 :bounce: .I'm just wondering are the new penryn cpu going to support ddr2 ? or you have to buy ddr3?is it overclockable like q6600?

Woa only 4months!


And then something else will be coming out, then something else and something else.


Q6600 wont perform to badly against them anyway. You definatly wont get slowed down in ANY software with a 3ghz quad.

yeah but q6600 isnt a real true quad like penryn, I know with the new go stepping q6600 u can easily overclock the cpu to 3.6 on air. But just wondering how q6600 going to perform aganist the new penryn at 2.50 :ouch:  if its not big leap I would get q6600 now.

:pfff:  So, the 4 cores on the q6600 are not real? This was AMD's arguement until they came out with their dual socket L "quad FX" answer we have yet to see a "quad" core AMD processor. I also believe the E5420 and the E5410 are server CPUs on socket 771 not LGA775. For desktop penryns we will have to wait until Q1 08.

well a difference between a monolithic quad core and a dual die quad core has very little performance boost.. as were seen in the dual core scheme.

That might be true in a desktop enviroment, servers are a whole new beast.

But one of these two dual cores oc much better than the other due to, ahem, archetectural and management constraints.

Are there any socket 771 boards that will let you overclock?

Uhm, Penryn is not a "true" quad core either - its two evolved conroes tacked together on a 45nm process.


Not saying there is anything wrong with that approach, it gets good products to market very quickly, however I think Barcelona will expose *some* minor speed issues when transferring info from the 1/2 to 3/4 cores.


But, Intel have had quad cores out for around a year now, so you'd have to say it was the right approach.

It's a waste of money to get a high end CPU when it will be outpreformed in 4 month by mainstream. Spending 1000$ on Q8850 today is a waist but getting a CPU like Q6600 today for mainstream 300$ kicks ***, well it kicks :) 
I so double what Hatman has said, in four month something else will be out so you will have to wait again :) 
+ with such an agressive pricing AMD will be forced to duck and cover by keeping thier prices low as well :) 
How many of us really expect Penryn to outpreform todays Duals and Quads silly??? It's hard to compete vs such a successfull technology, even if it's your "inelegant" - (not native) brother :)

wait for a year,you'll get nehalem :whistle: 
July 18, 2007 6:05:06 PM

just wait 20 more years, then we'll have killer robots for $300.
July 18, 2007 6:25:49 PM

About the RAM it depends on the motherboard you buy, as Intel still don't have memory controllers in the CPU. But surely DDR3 will be the best option in the longer run.

Silly rabbit...

There won't even be an earth in 20 years... rampant global warming will kill us all!!

Seriously though... "the end is near".

Either that or we will be simulating the world's end on 1 trillion terraflop brain in a can bio cpu :)  ...
Intel manufactured ofcource.. AMD will not last that long :??:

You're thinking of Nehalem. Penryn is still an MCM. Two dual core chips on a package. Intel says Penryn will be 40% faster in some apps that use SSE4 and about 20% faster in games. I'm sure someone has linked to the announcement at Anand.

DELETED Wasting your monies.

Wait 2 years and get Gesher.

What's monies ?

What's a Gesher?

States that Intel has ditched that name some time ago

First off how do you even know these are the "official" prices? This article came from some guys blog. Not intel.

I'm with you on this one I going to invest in a custom case and wait for Penryn reviews to come w/ a close eye on OC'ing.

Dont get a q6600 dont get a penryn, GOGO PHENOMENAL
