    Intel Extreme Edition 955 Processor

    It's lean, it's mean, it's an Intel Extreme... Edition.
    Being critical, the Intel Extreme Edition runs a little hotter than we'd like and should have shipped with a default clock speed of at least 3.73GHz, giving better out-of-the-box performance. The days of performance single-core CPUs are numbered, even for gamers, with the likes of ATI and NVIDIA investing in multi-CPU driver support that makes better use of the parallel power on tap. The Intel Extreme Edition 955 is a mighty fast, overclockable CPU that's out of the reach for most punters. What'll be interesting to note is how quickly Intel is able to release slower, cheaper models into the retail domain. A 65nm, 3GHz, dual-core CPU for £200 sounds just about right. Will you oblige, Intel?

    So what that means is that Intel will release a cpu that beats todays top X2 in mid january. Which seems like the timeline for new duel-core FX. Sounds like Intel will still be behind AMD. Maybe thier new marketing campaing will speed up thier processors.

    This XE suffers for the same reason Paxville Xeon does, pretty much. Lots of processing oomph all squeezed down a skinny, unable pipe to the rest of the system. Wake me up when Intel design a CPU-to-system bus worthy of their next gen multi-core architectures.
    MOLLY AND POPPY!
