    When are the upcoming Lynnfields coming out - anyone heard a release date?
    All this talk of how intel screwed up its naming line up makes me want to

    6th of September apparently, we'll probably get reviews around next week or in two weeks to hype them up even more, looking good too, the release price of the i5 750 2.66GHz is a massive $100 less than the i7 920 but I reckon it'll still retail here for around £180-200 =\
    Definately picking up the i5 when the new i7's are gonna be about $90 more when the only difference is hyper threading :O

    EDIT: +2.8GHz as apposed to 2.66GHz

    I honestly wish I had waited however Im sat on a 4.6ghz i7 so who cares! On a plus I do get to go to the Asus Xtreme Gaming Summit at the end of the month, hopefully they will have some there as they will have some of the "mystery" chipsets on show (p55)

    If the i5 offered the X58 chipset I would have waited... Running Crossfire or SLI on the new boards will be limited in ability, and I will be running 3X SLI. That aside, the i5 chips do look nice.

    It's not a review, it's a "first look" :p ;)

    Check wikipedia for the Lynnfield details *cough*

    We've got about 4-5 features lined up for it, and I'll be writing most in the next two weeks :geek:

    Did I ever tell you I love you? :blush:

    What details are you allowed to give out? I was just wondering if you'd be reviewing the msi p55-gd65 and the core i5 aswell as the core i7's?

    i have some 'details' of two of the Lynnfield chips...

    Core i5 750
    and
    Core i7 860

    the wikipedia details are accurate.
    though.

    i have shots of actual US pricing for those two chips.
    and they aren't what is on wikipedia.
