I wonder if that i7 950 means that Intel has their binning all straightened out. Wonder how the 920 overclocks this spring...

What do you mean?

Also, what do you mean by "Intel's binning"?

Please excuse my stupid moment, here, if I'm missing something obvious.

Binning is when they sort the good apples from the bad, i.e. Intel keeps the better dies which have better voltage regulation and overclocking capabilities for the extreme editions and server chips.

Humm...
Nice drops. Nothing on the E5200 tho.
I wonder if there is something coming up on the E5200. If I look at NCIX's stock check on that, seems like they bought a truck load (might not be a reliable number tho).
