    Core i7 -- Core i5 -- & now core -- i9 & core i3

    Eager to see core i1 ( as celeron replacement ) & core i11 ( as the future of procs )

    6 core in less than a year is going to be a biiiiiig mistake. Nothing is really optmized yet for a quad core. a six core is totally unnecessary and I think Intel is doing it just for pride!

    yeah. but isn't Xeon workstation meant for that same purpose? I mean there are already six core Xeon processors for workstations and servers.

    whatever but AMD is getting pwned again and again coz intel has caught up speed in developing higher performance processors so they are leading continously for 3 years now, though price of these intel proccies are too much for the performance they offer and i can easily expect these Core i9 range to be in the 1299$ price range .

    @utsav, not exactly. AMD will keep the budget and mid rangecrown (even after core i5 and i3). Main reason being the power of their onboard chipsets and VFM motherboards, for which Intel has no answer.

    When you are getting AMD mobo+processor for the price of Intel mobo, the extra amount that you need to pay for Intel processor can be put in GPU or HDD or any other component making the rig much much faster overall.

    most of their updates have just been for the corporate sector and not for the mainstream. technically the mainstream is still on the C2D, so we really haven't seen much of an update for the past few years other than a die shrink.

    cant really say yet...everyone expected the cheapest core i7 to be 25k+ because of the perf it gave...cant say till it comes out...and i like the x58 support part....makes the expensive motherboards future proof...150$ for 2 years and the other 150 for the other 2 years.

    Well, the 32nm Gulftown 6-core chip is only going to be an "Extreme Edition" model, so you can bet it will be pricey.
