    Intel shows off working 3.2GHz Nehalem processors at IDF

    Intel's Nehalem chips were just officially announced a couple weeks ago, but the company's already showing off early samples at the Intel Developer Forum in China this week. Performance numbers are being closely guarded, but quad-core samples are clocked at 3.2GHz, and it's expected that Nehalem chips will offer up to a 30 percent performance increase at the same clock speeds over Core 2 processors. Of course, the name still sounds like a particularly violent sneeze, but you know Intel's running some hard-core focus groups right now to fix that problem.

    Anyone else getting a bit horny for one of these?

    No. "Horny" doesn't sound right paired with technology. *shivers*

        Are these going to need new chipsets and sockets? Or will some of the current chips and mobos run these with BIOS updates?

        Im thinking of putting in a new mobo, ram and cpu this summer/fall and want to be sure Im at least a little future proof.

          Going to need a whole new setup for these. With their on CPU memory controler, it doesn't need the one on the MB anymore for one thing. And it is a new socket, and supposed to be DDR3 only, but read that most boards will have 6 RAM slots now.

            Thanks Bamboo. I know for a fact that when I'm ready to build these will just about be out, be really expensive and I will want them. I of course will not have the coin and be "dissapointed" in having to "settle" for a blazing fast Q6600 or e8400 ddr2, p35/x38 setup.

                Well, with these processors and the whole kaboodle I imagine Vista should really shine then. Seriously I doubt I will be thinking of any upgrades for a long time since I just built this computer I am on now. I will be lucky to have a new computer in another 3 years...MAYBE.

                  I am really happy with mine right now as well, except I would like a better graf. card for ARMA and few upcomming games. The games that come out will dictate weather or not I get a Nehalem.

                  Farcry 2, ARMA 2, Operation FLashpoint 2, Battlefield 3 (if they don't screw it up too bad) etc.

                    For Bamboo it is perfectly normal nature. I know its hard to except but that how it is

                    I also think that this will be crysis answer to running settings a high with no problems

                      More info on the socket
                      Nehalem's new CPU socket is bigger and more robust
                      Says all our aftermarket cpu coolers won't fit :(

                        Great. So we'll have even weirder looking CPU coolers in the future that weigh quite a bit more and crap so people can OC the Nehalem to 10 GHz.
