    so dual cores are just starting to become norm, now Oct cores with 16 threads in total will "soon" be out?

    im lucky i chose q6600 :) multi-core is the future!

    When I was new to modding I modded the whole startup to supply a greeting...it gets old fast, trust me. On the subject of 8 cores, wow! But the cynic in me wonders how long it will take for most software to take advantage?

    Sort of, the cores are using on-die interconnects to talk to each other now if that's what you mean. Intel Quick Connect = AMD HyperTransport

    If it means less fiddling around with straps for memory dividers when overclocking then I'm all for it!

    yep, but there will be an 8-core product launched in 2008. That's 8 cores on a single die based on what Otellini said, not SMP like I reported here: http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2007/09/19/nehalem_adds_7_more_sse4_instructions_smp_working/1

    Don't forget the silicon was only taped out three weeks ago, so Intel hasn't got a dual-die chip working yet. But Otellini has said it'll happen. :)

    The chips on show are only quad-core versions.

    It's a new version of hyperthreading, but it's not been given a name yet.
