    Core i7 Extreme 975 has a 3.33GHz. Put two of them on a suitable MB and you've got a real devil of a system 6.66 Ghz (sic):D

    Wow, that's an incredible price. How anyone could justify that price when the i7 920 is £240 is beyond me.

    how about we all get together for a mid night raid on a retail store and get ourselves one of these each. lol, no idea who would buy a processor at almost 1k, you could buy all your components with an i7 920 for that price.
