150 watt TDP at the stock clock and voltages though and it runs at 3.1 Ghz base though....You can imagine what the TDP will look like with 1 extra Ghz on the base clocks and more voltage to keep it stable....

Hence i'm only excited with 8 core processors when using Intel's 22nm process wich is 30% more power efficient for a given clock, wich also means it generates less heat since there's less power going into it in the first place.

In the meantime the 12 core/ 24 threads on my current setup will have to do....
