While the prices are far from confirmed until Intel updates its pricing list, some have reported seeing the Core i5-750 listed at Fry's Electronics for $205, which comes close to the prices listed above.

    the processor prices are not the problem, getting an i7 920 D0 for $200 at microcenter has been around for months. It is the motherboard prices that have people interested. P55 in particular

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but under cores/threads... i am assuming like for the core i3 530, it says 2/4 ... so this would be 2 physical cores then 2 hyper-threaded cores?

    The i3 530 and 540 are not bad prices... i will admit i've always bought AMD... but if my question above is correct, then essentially we are seeing a "quad" core for 120 bucks.. Phenom2 x2's and the Athlon2 x2's are going to be put on the spot by these guys....hard.

    Interesting, I thought the 2.66GHz Lynfield chip was going to release with 8 threads, and have i7 branding.. but perhaps Intel didn't want to cannibalize i7 920 sales with a similar performing cheaper chip. I guess this forces me into selecting a Core i7-860 if these numbers are accurate.

    i7-860 and i5-750 with 3 steps Turbo look good.

    Bleh, nevermind. My memory was just bad... I dug up Anand's article again, and I just had it wrong. Anand had simply run some benches at 2.66GHz HT Enabled with a test sample, and I forgot the 2.66GHz chip would NOT come w/ HT.

    I'm still excited about how the i7-860 setups will compare to i7-920 machines... and if the i7-920 will be released with a more aggressive turbo stepping.

    Oh crap not another socket, 1156. My Q9650 and GTX 285 has plenty of years of gaming left in it. This is especially true since of late game developers have been porting their games from the kiddie consoles instead of setting new PC standards. Crysis 2 will be less taxing than the first one was. Look at the new Wolfenstein game to be released in a week or so.
    Maybe Carmack's Tech 5 engine and Doom 4 (Yes id has said there is a Doom 4 that will be made) will give us PC gamers some new standards.
    I am looking forward to Dragon Age from Bioware, EA Games can still kiss my arse.

    I'll wait until Intel releases 8 cores. The I'll get DDR 3 or whatever the new RAM is at the time and of course I'll need a new MB.... That is.. unless AMD pulls out a CPU that is more impressive. OR so cheap I can't refuse. But they way they've been lately... I doubt it.

    BTW, is it me or does it feel like that Intel is trying to give AMD breathing room in the below $200/190 market and especially in the sub-$120 market. Intel is not competing with AMD’s PII X3/X2 and Athlon II X2s.

    I think Intel is trying to keep AMD limping along just so there is another player in the market.

    I suppose i9 is finally going to be twice as fast as my Q6600; the minimum requirement for me to upgrade.
