Default INTEL wants us all running Quads?

"Intel will be slashing the price of the Quad Core Q6600 to an unbelievable $266."

Soon Quads will be included in cereal boxes.

We all need to know when exactly it'll happen. It's probably going to be sometime in August. I'm going to wait to upgrade to Quad core until then.

They mention early July when they release the 1333mhz bus versions of the C2Ds, Which also are going to be CHEAPER than the current 1066s are NOW. Jebus!

Looks like someone is panicking over the release of K10.

That will happen on 7/22/2007. Intel will be launching new 45nm parts, and "obsolete" 65nm parts will be sold really cheap :-) For $266, everybody will get quadcore (and AMD will be in even bigger loss than now, if that is possible at all, not being able to sell $50 X2s)..
