    bad news for new quads..perhaps

    Not sure if anyone has already posted this but it doesn't look good if you're planning a build in January.

    Re: bad news for new quads..perhaps

    saw this over at extreme overclocking forums.

    makes me feel a lot better about buying my q6600 last week
    though it's a bit of a shame that the only reason they are stopping the consumer from recieving a superior product is because of a lack of competition

    Re: bad news for new quads..perhaps

    Q6600 can be had for £145ish now. I would just get that. It's a fantastic chip and I can't imagine you noticing a difference between that and the new ones day to day.

    That is bad news indeed...
    Hopefully they will come out at the same time as the new nvidia cards

    Re: bad news for new quads..perhaps

    In some ways it proves that waiting isn't always best. If you need it now, then get it now.

    Waiting in the PC market is a little pointless anyway - there's always something new round the corner.

    Yeah, I think nvidia have the same plan, nothing is challenging the 8800gtx ultras :\

    PC Pro: News: Intel delays new 45nm processors
    I wouldnt say 4-6 weeks is long to wait for a better chip.

    Have you thought that this 'might' be yet another ploy by Intel to get rid of the old stock before shipping the new?

    Everyone waiting for the new core will buy the old one...then the new will magically appear early.

    Cynical??? Probably...........
    Any form of truth in it?......wouldnt suprise me.

    Intel are showing what happens when you have a monopoly. It is this sort of behaviour that helps drives up AMD sales - when they have a product...

    Gobbob instead of complaining about SCAN in here why not PM one of them or open a thread in the SCAN care section?

    *shrugs* probably just building up volume and better speed bins so they can release a whole range.

    Re: bad news for new quads..perhaps

    Read this yesterday evening, the build will have to wait a while it seems, not to worry.

    Any idea on the new pricing strategy on the new Intel chips and also the newer Nvidia cards?

    Thanks.

    Re: bad news for new quads..perhaps

    Most games at the moment are GPU limited anyway, so I think I'll just upgrade whenever nVidia release their new cards. Hopefully they don't delay as well.
