Post Intel releases Core 2 Quad Extreme QX6800

Quote:
Intel has chosen Easter Sunday to launch its latest product known by the full name as Core 2 Extreme QX6800, displacing its predecessor's dual-core X6800 and quad-core QX6700. Most enthusiasts will however, just name this model Kentie at 2.93 GHz.
