    what about sockets?

    i heard there will be different sockets for different market segment, so if one buys mid-range motherboard, one may not be able to use higher end Bloomfield (currently named i7)

    so you can only go quad core if you go super high end, if the sockets for i7 and whatever the dual core one is called is different that could be a real pain, having to buy a new board and start again with windows jsut to swap cpu's

    LGA1366 = Bloomfield ('i7') quad cores. QPI, triple-channel DDR3. Both high-end desktop and dual-socket workstation and server platforms.
    LGA1160 = Lynnfield ('isomethingorother' I guess they'll be, not i7) quads and Havendale duals. DMI, dual-channel DDR3. Mainstream desktop platforms, different socket but same CPUs for laptops I guess.
