Yeah, I saw the slides...crap!
Seriously, I've been saving for 10 years for the day when I could be the absolute highest end PC possible, and was really hoping that SNB-E would be the way to go, with 8 cores/16 threads.
The 2011 Xeons probably have 8 cores...I'll just get one or two of those
Or, more likely, I'll let my obscene computer-life-savings burn a hole in my pocket until Ivy-Bridge E.
