    Wondering how much it's going to cost, the same as current 920 or more?
    hmmm....default multi is 21x....how can overclock higher with this new chip but big question is if your cooler can handle it or not?

    It's going to be interesting to see how many people will buy this. If the pricing is about the same as the 920, then you're getting a better processor, and it hasn't even been that long since the 920 was released.

    I doubt it's the same price because this is better chip, higher clock speed. I think it will cost about $50 more than 920.

    The question is if the 50$ premium is worth more in terms of overclocking, I guess we'll just have to see.

    My guess is No. $50 for an extra 200MHz or so, assuming there's some good cooling?

    It's only worth it if they increase the multiplier, otherwise an i7 920 kicks A$$ as it is.

    Yes, they did increase the multi, it's now 2.88Ghz instead of 2.66Ghz.

    Doctor Death, would you go with the i7 or the Quad core? Because I own Core 2 Duo, eventually I might want something faster. I used to have a P4, 3.0. But I downgraded to a P3, because they were getting better testing results across the board. I'm not an expert on CPU's. Thats why I'm trying to find out what CPU would give me the best bang for my buck. But my budget is very limited at the moment. Thanks for any advice.

    I'm not Dr D, but maybe I can help.

    If you're on a limited budget, then do not go to i7. I'd go with a simple quad core. If you can toss one into your current socket, that's great! If not, AMD may be the way to go, since the 775 CPUs haven't dropped in price much at all. ($250 for Q9550, $320 for Q9650)

    For my CPU, a decent mobo and RAM, it'd cost maybe 300-330, maybe less if you get some good combo deals. AMD is reigning champ of "Bang for the Buck" right now.

    What's your budget, by the way?

    Lol, honestly I don't really have a budget yet. But if things work out a few months down the road, my budget might be around 300 if I'm lucky. I used to have an AMD when I had a P4. But now I'm using a Core 2 Duo, E7400, 2.8ghz. I think you're right about a simple quad. But would I need a new motherboard? Or can I use the 775 socket? Thats where I'm unsure. I might have to research it more. But I'm looking to gain some speed out of a new CPU. So you think a simple quad for speed? AMD makes a pretty good CPU, I know that. I didn't realize what a difference in speed I would get when I went from a P4 back to a P3. What a dumb move on my part. I didn't realize my mistake until the damage was done. I had an AMD P4, and went to a Core 2 Duo P3. I should've kept my AMD. It's a good processor. Just slightly slower.

    You'd have to check to see if your motherboard is compatible with quad cores, and which ones. You might be able to get away with just popping a quad in there, since they have a lot of 775 quads. If you do need to change platforms, AMD will be cheaper, hands down.

    ES versions starting to show up here and there with release said to be end of Feb???

    2.80GHz (21x 133)
    2.93GHz Turbo (22x133)
    8MB L3
    4 Cores / 8 threads
    130W TDP
    Price should be about the same as 920 now.

    Now I have no experience so comments that I read about even turbo ratios being tougher to get stable than odd numbers would seem to suggest there is little to be gained but hey what do I know. I have seen a 4.5 3dmark on air though
    Rig2: 2*e5-26xx (16c/32t @2.4), Asus z9 pe-d8 ws, 32gb ripjawsz under water, rig3 2*e5-26xx (16c/32t @2.4), Supermicro 7047A-T 16GB 1600 ecc reg, on air, Rig4: 2*e5-26xx (16c/32t @3.1), Supermicro x9 DAi 16GB 1600 ecc reg, on air, Rig5: 2*e5-2660 (16c/32t @2.7), Supermicro x9 DRW iF 32GB 1600 ecc reg, on air
