    Intel's CEO, Paul Ravioli Cacciatore Otellini said their quad-core CPUs are coming in November. These chips are made for servers and Xtreme gaming rigs, and will be priced accordingly. Versions of the CPU for mainstream desktops will arrive early 2007.

    The four cores are useful for multi-tasking, which is great for bloggers cause we have tens of apps open at once. If only we got paid enough to afford one.

    Now, AMD will strike back at Intel!! Intel was supposed to release 'Core 2 Duo' six
    months back!! They didn't & they paid the price. Where's Intel's 64-bit Processor
    for desktop PC??

    These Quad Core Edns are giving nearly 60-70 % performance improvement over X6800 as previewed by Anandtech and XBitLabs. Thatz gr888 considering that Klentzfield will be priced @ 999 USD same as wat X6800 costs 2day. :)
