    Interesting...but useless because programmers are still stuck with most of the codes for dual core,so forget about 12threads...but looks so extreme :P

    I can't fully agree with that. But for the most part, it's still true.

    There's a "small", but substantial # of programmers who can use more cores and are begging for more - me included.


    More importantly, the increasing # of cores will force programmers to start getting their act together.

    I can't say I fully agree with this, but we do still see quite a bit of laziness in the programming field. When I thread out code, I make it use as many cores as are available. Not everything can be processed in this fashion, however. Some times a process is just highly serial in nature, so it isn't fully fair to just blame the coders when programs seem to disappoint in this regard.
    Particle's First Rule of Online Technical Discussion:
    As a thread about any computer related subject has its length approach infinity, the likelihood and inevitability of a poorly constructed AMD vs. Intel fight also exponentially increases.

    Rule 1A:
    Likewise, the frequency of a car pseudoanalogy to explain a technical concept increases with thread length. This will make many people chuckle, as computer people are rarely knowledgeable about vehicular mechanics.

    Rule 2:
    When confronted with a post that is contrary to what a poster likes, believes, or most often wants to be correct, the poster will pick out only minor details that are largely irrelevant in an attempt to shut out the conflicting idea. The core of the post will be left alone since it isn't easy to contradict what the person is actually saying.

    Rule 2A:
    When a poster cannot properly refute a post they do not like (as described above), the poster will most likely invent fictitious counter-points and/or begin to attack the other's credibility in feeble ways that are dramatic but irrelevant. Do not underestimate this tactic, as in the online world this will sway many observers. Do not forget: Correctness is decided only by what is said last, the most loudly, or with greatest repetition.

    Rule 3:
    When it comes to computer news, 70% of Internet rumors are outright fabricated, 20% are inaccurate enough to simply be discarded, and about 10% are based in reality. Grains of salt--become familiar with them.

    Remember: When debating online, everyone else is ALWAYS wrong if they do not agree with you!

    Random Tip o' the Whatever
    You just can't win. If your product offers feature A instead of B, people will moan how A is stupid and it didn't offer B. If your product offers B instead of A, they'll likewise complain and rant about how anyone's retarded cousin could figure out A is what the market wants.

    Thanks for bringing this to us.
    Just one comment: The W5590 writing on the pic.
    Gulftown 6 cores aren't W5590's..
    W5590's are 3330mhz 4 core gainestowns or are you saying that the top 2 cpu's are W5590's and the bottom one is the 6 core Gulftown?

    Yeap, this is the idea ...
    And the different between them in the pics is obvious ...

    W5590 is this rite ...

    The 3.33GHz one is the 975 extreme.

    The 6-core single-socket chips are probably gonna be i9.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yeah. I'm sticking with my trusty Q6600 until there are some more affordable and enticing options. I'd go x58/p55 immediately if there were a new and improved SB. But a 6 core nahalem should be gold.

    Don't forget that these type of systems are meant for workstation type work loads which often leverage their power not only through multithreaded applications but often many single threaded applications. Also people who work / have a hobby in the A/V field will obviously appreciate these cpus.

    Now not everyone I've spoke to agrees with me on this but I for one find both Linux and Windows Vista / 7 to be more responsive and smoother on a system with more than 2 cores. Now the difference between 2-3 is a lot more than the difference between 3-4 in terms of general system performance but I still can notice it. I had been running my E8400 at 4Ghz for about 8 months and I'm back on my Q6600 which is at 3.2Ghz ( I didn't find the benefits of the higher clock dual core to be tangible enough to make up for the loss of 2 cores ) and the system has felt quite a bit better in comparison ( and this is based on everyday tasks to more strenuous activities )

    I'm holding off on any platform upgrades until I see where these chips end up sitting price wise. Looking forwards to see how 32nm scales power wise.

    I gotta ask an as*hole question. Will there be a different Mobo chipset for this or will it stay X58?
