Ya see, its known we hardly ever use 4 threads, but its coming. Releasing these too soon would cut mightily into Intels quad sales

A more proper term would be "osborne effect"

somethings wrong with that CPU-Z reading, first it says 2660mhz not 2666.6mhz and second the 2.66ghz version doesn't have Hyperthreading but it reads that there are 8 threads.

It could be a ES, and have everything enabled, unlike retail, where the 2.66 wont have HT
