Cool. At a halfway decent price, Intel will sell boxes of them.

I'm with obsidian86. No gamers currently use dual core chips in new builds unless they're on a very strict budget. In that case, they use AMD. For that price you can have a quad core.

Edit: It's good to see Intel giving a nod to overclockers, but it isn't really needed. Their chips overclock like crazy without unlocked multipliers.

me-three ...

... Intel wouldn't do this if there were any future in it (snot) !

... Even the lamer games will be looking for 4 cores, next cycle.

God.... is Intel punishing us early adopters who bought the LGA1366 motherboards + CPUs? I do hope we get something like this....

At any rate, this is a chip meant to go under LN2/WCing for insane OC, not so much as a "gaming" CPU imo.

^Yup. This "unlocked" CPU is really meant to be OCed the hell out of and meant to break records, not so much as to be used by "gamers".

^ I'd get the Ripjaws. Excellent RAM imo, Ripjaws, Dominators, and PI Black are excellent choices for OCing.
