BTW - Those prices are per/1000. Not retail prices. retail prices usually arent that much higher though.

Now that lineup could easily put a hurting to AMD. The 6550 is probably right in line with an FX-62 stock, the only difference is that it is only $163 and probably draws like 1/2 the power too. The brand new 6000+ should easily be trumped by the E6750, so AMD has a lot of ground to make up.

The mainstream can rejoice now, as almost everyone can afford a C2D.

I'm waiting for barcelona as well, but I might be making a slight detour to 45nm quad core if they can keep the pace up.

EDIT: Actually thinking about it more, chances are good that the 6000+ is right in line with the E6550.

I wonder exactly how much these are going to cost retail.

Their previously released price scale was quite a bit different:



I was planning on getting an E6320 before, but if the 6540 and 6550 are going to be in the same price range, why not get one of those?

Well, I think I'm gonna get a 6320 just because I can save some money that way, and just by overclocking it some you can get it to run at the same speed as a c2d6600.

And by Christmas you should be able to get a nice quad core for a lot less.

Heh, you know... I don't think there is even any difference between the 6320 and the 6540. They have the same multiplier, and the same amount of cache. If you run a 6320 at 1333 bus speed it'll be the same speed.

I guess its all going to come down to overclockability and price. Hopefully we get some overclocking reviews\previews soon.

My question is how do these motherboard manufacturers know what Intel plans to do? They are either speculating or breaking NDA, right?

Is HKPEC pretty solid on these types of predtions?
