The only CPUs Intel are releasing in the near future are Bloomfields so why are you even talking about anything else? All the boards in this thread are for Bloomfields.

These mainstream processors you are talking about are called Lynnfield, they won't be released for nearly 9 months and are not even the same socket (LGA1156) as these Bloomfields (LGA1366). They probably won't even be called Core i7. By the time they come out we will probably be nearing the release of Bloomfield's successor, Westmere.

If you want to buy a Nehalem CPU for your desktop then your only realistic option until Q3/4 09 is going to be Bloomfield. Yes they are meant to the slightly higher end, but they aren't these uber-clocking variants you're talking about. Only the top of the line Bloomfield will be an Extreme Edition CPU. What that specifically means for this range of CPUs we are yet to find out.
What he said.



Can I run a 3rd X2 on this?
