Honestly what if amd IS going to compete with the i7 and thats why they used that naming scheme? Lets be honest no one expects them to come very close to the i7 at all, maybe theyre "leaking" false info so when these things come out and are on par with nehalem everyone goes crazy and buys out every phenom II and intel has to drop prices like crazy and lose a ton of money.

A guy can dream cant he? lol

Basically the same thing they did with ATi's 4xxx series? Anyone remember the leaked info that the 4870 would only be as fast as a 9800GTX(non +), what a load of croak that was!

tigerdirect has the i920 for $399 not sure where you are looking though...

it also doesn't require spending $350+ on a board and $200-$300 on RAM just to get that processor.
it can just drop right into an existing AM2+ board (via bios update) with no platform change at all.

i've seen it listed as well @ $379.
Intel Core i7 920 2.66 GHz Processor Socket 1366 (8MB L3 Cache)-BX80601920.

Exactly what im hoping for lol, also its important to remember that these stores with "leaked prices" arent even very big and will be forced to charge more. Big companies like newegg and ncix should be able to charge less
