Thanks for that! :P

HOLY DISCLOSURE BATMAN
If you use the benchmarks shown... and the graphics card shown.... and this isn't fake...
You can figure out that this 2.93Ghz Nehalem is currently giving about the same results as a Current Intel 45nm Quad of about 3.4Ghz. About 16% faster than current offerings clock per clock than current 45nm processors.
A CPU score of about 14000 in 3dMark Vantage would get you that P score with that video card. (HINT: You must search with ALL video drivers not just WHQL.) A Q9450 at 3.4Ghz scores about the same CPU score.
Well the new memory interface is very usefull when you really puch all your four or more cores... And now when most programs use one to two cores, the memory bandwide has not been big problem. (That's why Core2 has not have any problems with Phenoms...)
Nehalem is for future multicore aplications. With those it will wipe the floor with Core2's... maybe ;-)

Too early to tell, though. Anyway, I'll wait for Westmere and a mobo that supports PCIe 3.0 and USB 3.1.
And if you keep waiting for the "next best thing"... you'll be waiting forever.

I agree with you. However, it's not like I have any reason to upgrade "right now" (almost, actually). If a Wolfdale/Yorkfield can handle anything we can throw at them, why would I jump into the Nehalem bandwagon during its initial release, probably plagued with tons of crappy motherboard designs and so on? Besides, a new USB standard doesn't show up ever year. How long have we had our USB 2.0? I care a lot about "devices" and it's not as if a 10x faster standard didn't matter to me. I'm not talking about 10 or 20 FPS in a game that scores 100 already.
Besides, who knows what AMD can do with AM3, if they don't paper-launch it?
I'll upgrade when something shows me at least 50-70% in performance gains for a reasonable price. Until then, I think it's worth waiting for the 'next big thing'.

Truer words were never spoken, personally I am waiting for a minimum 8 or 16 core unit at a reasonable price before I even think of upgrading, even then I'II have to look at the software landscape.
