Q1 2010? You guys realize that Q1 ends on March 31st right? So the 32nm chips could be a year away. Besides, from everything I've read, they should be drop in compatible just like the 45nm chips were on S775.

So with that information cleared up I hope no one is holding back their i7 builds waiting for this. That said, it should be a GREAT chip when its out, imagine the crunching/folding power!

Huh, that's too bad. I'd read a report that said Q4 2009. Guess it got bumped since that one was printed.

Yeah it's pretty sweet that they're keeping the same socket! I just fear the price of these babies

Well, they can't go too absurdly high, because no one would buy 'em at all.... so let's just assume they'll all cost between... say, $1K - $2k.

Y'know. Cheap.

Hexa core? What an unnatural number... Shouldn't they be making octo cores instead? Keep it to powers of 2 only. :p

So is this gonna be a lga-1366 socket processor that will drop into current i7 boards? Do you think there is a xenon based version of this coming out as well?
