So will the 4 series ones be as good of overclockers? Highlan3r has already said the true allendales will be mad.
4MB versions of current Allendales?
So that would either be Conroe or the new Allendales, in which case they should overclock like buggery.
6700's look nice. however, i also like the look of the 4- series
Quad for $530? Niiiiiice.
AMD is no match for Conroe
so should I get a 6700 instead of 6600? or use the 6600's extra cash for something
Isn't the world just mad. One year ago who would have predicted that Intel would adopt AMD's winning business model, and AMD would some how forget what their model was
With such high performance and such low prices how can anyone complain....Nice one Intel.
The e6700 is a fantastic cpu, with one sitting in my machine it handles everything thrown at it. Shame the motherboard isnt so reliable
To answer your question, the 66 is still a formidable cpu and for the proce you cant go wrong really, get a 66 and a Striker Extreme board with some good 800mhz and your on the easy road to vista
******s! i just bought a 6700 as well!
wow, price cut for intel cpu's. 2007 i should buy it. quad core is my choice
nice.... it could be a nice time to get an upgrade....
I was about to whine (this would have put an E6600 within my reach) when I read the "second quarter". Ah well.
The E6700 looks like a really good deal after this price cut. The price cut on the Quad is great, but still places it firmly within the premium segment as far as I'm concerned…
I'll probally grab the E6400 snice I'm not all that rich.
nice-o... 2nd quarter..jjust in time for me to save enough to get a new mobo and RAM as well.... 6600 ***!
Ohh I may just be able to get quad core then
I'm going to start saving - dx10 gaming rig here I come!
I just hope that Intel do what they say they are going to do! The AMD prices cuts, if anything to go by, were phenomenal for an 'underdog' company. Although, the conroe/allendale chips are already reasonably priced to be honest - for the performance you get! All we need now is VIA to come in adn get a third chip on the go and then it will be wide open!!!!! Now then, who is up for phoning citrix!!!!
2007 is shaping up to be a very exciting time to be building a new rig... ATI/AMD affiliation.... ATI new DX10 card.... Intel price cuts... Intel bringing in new chip lines.... AMD initiating their final phase 65nm chips.... ITS A GOOD YEAR....!!!
Q2 - April Onwards? Fricken sweet I was gonna build at the end of march (ie april lol) so this is brilliant news, the E6600 Quad it is for me. This is good news all round and it is nice to see intel know even they have to get down and dirty and cut prices
3K now seems to be stetching further
Err is it me or anouncements that are maybe 6 whole months in advance and I'm supposed to be excited.... please people get real.
