    New cpu's are here!

    just got back from the shops and the E8*** are in stock!!!!.

    the E8200 was around 60-70ish and the e8400 (picture robbed from taiwanese ebay below) is around £90, so they are here so i guess its a matter of days before they arrive in the uk?.

    cants wait for the QUADS!!!

    Saw the review on Xbit labs and they look sweet:

    X-bit labs - Meet Intel Wolfdale: Core 2 Duo E8500, E8400 and E8200 Processors Review

    Prices will probably be a bit higher than that though

    What's so annoying is that the UK prices will be much higher than the prices stated in Taipei. (fingers crossed but I expect the etailers and ebayers to price gouge these chips).

    It will be the usual formula for the retailers - work out the price using current exchange rates ... and then DOUBLE it for the UK suckers!!!

    It really hacks me off, but on the other hand I really, really need a shiny new processor for my PC.
