    As in Hansel and?

    I always thought it was just Q4, so still in line with that. Not that there's any particular rush I'd have thought, unless somethings happening in the server area I'm not very aware of.

    I think I'm going to wait to upgrade now. I feel like I might regret it if I don't. At the least the release of nehalem will bring about big price cuts on core 2 chips. If that happens 2 months after I've spend hundreds on upgrading I won't be happy.

    Makes me wonder how or if AMD is ever going to get it back together. Another crushing blow on the desktop front is coming for them. That midrange Nehalem looks mighty tempting.

    i like competition and i want nehalem to be alot better then core 2 but at the same time i wand AMD to release a chip thats on par with nehalem for competition becuase competition = better products and better prices.

    take a look at graphics cards. nvidia 280 was £500 when it was released, now its around £280 and its only been out for a month

    Re: Headlines - Intel's Nehalem to launch in September?

    i've been mulling over a new case and PSU for quieter running and as tends to happen when looking at computer parts i started to think of a new mobo to go along with them

    so i'm happy about this announcement cause it'll stop me buying something i don't really need for at least a month \o/

    I hope so - I put together my first self-build xmas just gone, and put in a e2160 (overclocked now of course ). I was then planning on replacing it when nehalem came out, in the hope that skt775 quad's would drop sharply in price when there was sparkly new stuff out.

    Yes, here's to competition, it's good for us consumers so we need a healthy AMD to bring out something similarly good or -even- better than nehalem. I'm not holding out for a better AMD chip, but it would be great to have a choice, even though we all know nehalem will be better than AMD can come up with in the near future.

    Intel is just sewing up the victory. Desktop processors really don't need much more than 3GHz and two cores, unless you happen to be running FPU-intensive applications, in which case using CUDA or other discrete FPU register access is faster anyway. Especially across a modern HT/CSI bus connection.

    It's hard to see AMD trumping this for awhile. Hopefully a good upgrade path awaits us all.
