    Up to 63% improvements? O.O

    Just wish it wasn't an Extreme edition, they're always overpriced at 999$ :(

    "$999 per 1,000 chips" - less than $1 each? Bargain! :D

    it's a bad time to be an AMD fan... i'm planning on building myself a new system this summer, but with stuff like this coming out, barcelona performance, and no info on the R700 GPU... i'll probably end up building a completely non-AMD system.

    Having had less time this half year I did not follow the cpu market closely... And now I come back and it looks like you're all talking about fantasy MMORPG or something.... Yo dude, the Kensfields are so great... but Nehalem and Yorkfield will blow your mind away. Oh and it's easy to mine gold in the Yorkfields since noobs can't get there due t....

    For gaming do you really need anything more powerful then an overclocked Q6600 Go? I mean really a Q6600 running at 3.5 or 3.6 should be able to handle games for at least a year and a bit surely?

    Dont see the need to get any of the new intel chips. Might as well wait a year or two for when games will achually need a fast quad core.

    Most people nowadays 8igdave don't use their PC specifically for gaming. They might still play games, but CPU market is much more focused for servers and strong media production machines.

    it's the same TDP as the QX6700, QX6800 and QX6850. :)

    I got initially excited about the -650 naming, but on second thoughts maybe we won't see these getting much faster.

    There's already an X-class Xeon coming out at 3.16/1333, with the 3.0/1333 in a the "E" thermal band, so expect this QX9650 to turn into a plain Q9650 and there to be a QX9750 at 3.16/1333. Intel will release the new chipset (X48 I think) supporting 1600 so expect them to do the funny "interleaving" thing with the brand numbers. You'll get a Q9700 at 3.0/1600 and a new QX9800 at 3.2/1600 under this assumption.

    They could go higher, or advance in full rather than half-multipliers (though they've gone in halfs in the Xeon roadmap I saw on teh Inquirer), but perhaps there's no point given they're not being beaten up by AMD yet.
