woho (insert giggling sounds and silly such) The question is When and why both have yet to be seen. I know they should rock and I will likely blow a bunch of change on a Extreme i7 as soon as I can but when that is ...is another story. however if there OC potential is anything like the current batch then there is no need for the extreme model unless they have added some form of extra candy that is worthwhile.

Yeah I am going to skip i7 and go for their 32nm die shrink. Just going to be way to costly for a small gain. I would rather buy another 4870 X2 and some water cooling so I could over clock a lot and still be cheaper. Also maybe faster.
