some links that i found

anandtech overview ces intel (http://www.anandtech.com/weblog/showpost.aspx?i=333)

review E8x00 xbitslabs (http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/intel-wolfdale.html)

My conclusion :

Q9300,Q9450 and Q9550 are defently not for january anymore but somewhere in Q1 2008 :(

Idle temp, and temp so freaking low on E8x00 and still give 10-20% boost :headexplode:

3DMark CPU score is too low for these new breeds.

Intel's working on new stepping C1 for the mainstream Yorkfields.

non of the new CPU's really thrill me.. Then again most of us are running quads at 3.4GHz so we really shouldn't be drooling over these new cpus any way

Look pretty nice to me. It's just not the revolution that Conroe was... this is more of an evolution of this architecture.

The overclocking capabilities of the new dual cores are far far better than what one can expect with the new quad cores. Not to mention, a new $180 dual core at 4+GHz with a 500+MHz bus will destroy an old 3.4GHz quad core in any and every game benchmark.

I look at gaming like this.. You get it you play it, you beat it, next day its over with... On the other hand I do a crap load of media coding and you would need a 7GHz Dual core to match my quad so I don't see me ever owning another duo

That figure would be perfect if CPU processing power for each additional core was additive.

Gaming would also be as you described it unless you're like this guy. (http://www.gamespot.com/users/AdamK47/view_image?id=a4AO40gv7hKU7Rvm)

it depends on what you do oh, also no duals do not always win in gaming benchmarks. Lost planet for one makes great use of quads also for supreme commander its a must. Games are evolving as well and eventually dual cores will be useless :)

Yeah, I always figured it was conroe's architecture much more than the fact its a quad that helps it beat out the E series chips, simply because not much is optimized for quad core yet... but with how common quad core is now, that could change.

I'm going to wait until Nehalem with it's native quad core support instead of the two cores glued together route. I'll be using the extra money for DDR3 memory and board. I'm just crazy like that, plus I love overclocking.
