well, intel is supposed to be releasing a i3 560 thats 3.33GHz at the same time too. and most likely a non-extreme 6 core will be released at the $600 price mark?

I've found the same news elsewhere this morning as well. Really good news, I think my E758 supports that Chip, so it might be a nice small upgrade for me in the near future.

Espically considering thats less than I paid for my 930.

hmm, just realized something, the 950 is the older i7, and seems to be low stock levels to begin with? guess people are jumping the gun unless intel is releasing more of these processors??

whats also strange is the intel US site not listing the 930... weird.....
