Re: Intel X79 Chipset
slaWter, I'm actually inclined to agree with you. I honestly expected 8 core EE CPUs. My worry is that while there will be 8 core Xeons, they will likely be clock-nerfed...significantly.
I think I'll just keep saving my money until my current rig is too slow -- then go for a monster upgrade in a few years (maybe dual 10 core CPUs? XD)
