  • Nehalem, Core i7 priced up

    Lots of sites have been reporting these prices, so I'm guessing the are pretty accurate.
    Nehalem, Core i7 priced up

    Under $300 for a new gen. quad is pretty good I think, considering the q6600 started at like $800+ when it first appeared.

    The thing is, I have read this next part at other sites as well:
    Nehalem only supports DDR3 800 or 1066

    Ouch. That is both good and bad I think. That speed DDR3 is pretty cheap now, and lots to choose from.
    Speed : DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500)
    With a 4 gig kit from OCZ as low as $150 with rebate.

    But it is really slow, considering there is already lots of Speed : DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) out, even though they are really expensive at about $400 for a 4 gig kit.

    Guess we will find out in a few months. :row__523:

    Not to worry Bamboo. They will release the first wave of i7's. Then in 6-8 months after people have clammered to build a new system they will release there "new and improved" versions that support a higher memory speed. No need for them to relase anything more or too quickly if AMD isn't competing.

      why should amd compete right now? the more lucrative ATI is mopping the floor with nvidia ATM.

      I am waiting fro AMD to unleash another Athlon on the world and shock everyone again.

      I think a 1.3 ghz hexadec core and 23w that is 40% better than the best intel chip is around the corner....

        The effective FSB on those CPUs is what...1600 mhz? Unless you're planning on overclocking that chip and raising the FSB, the faster RAM isn't really all that useful.

        The initial pricing is nice. That should drive down the pricing on the current Core 2 Quads even more. In a few months, we're going to see a flurry of new quad-core rigs that'll make my head spin.

          Just to make your mouth water a bit more:

          Nehalem 4.1GHz pictured

          The CPU was stable at 4.11GHz and it finishes super Pi in just under 10 seconds, 9.969 to be exact.

              Wow, that's pretty nice, 4.11 Ghz. I wonder how much juice it's sucking up at that speed...
