First mainstream quad-core processors are expected to launch as Core 2 Quad E-series in the first quarter of next year.


Awesome. Might as well wait for that now.

I just read this myself, it sounds really tempting for a/v editing.

@Bearclaw: Where do you get a 17 foot monitor by chance? :p

The article says:
"The limited number of quad-cores is almost a guarantee that etail prices of the chip will climb well above the tray price of $1000"

I wonder what would be "well above"? Any ideas? 1500-1999$?

Glad its coming out now. Maybe by Mid/End of November they will at least be CLOSE to MSRP.

From the same article
Prices of 4x4 have not been discussed by AMD so far, but industry sources suggest that package deals with two FX processors will debut in the $800 to $900 range.I like to see that.

Things are still adapting to Duel-Core.... I love new tech but I see it as a waste of money the way things currently are....

Duel core would work so much better if they could just stop fighting with each other!

You know I was making fun of the fact that you called it "duel" core instead of "dual" core, right? :)
