A waist of money (as of now) if you ask me.
its not just about what can utilize, thats why you just set affinities to all your programs, sure its not great for an average user, but for music and video editors it is a dream.
and sure its a not a true "quad core", it is only 2 processors 2 die's.. but big whoop, does it make a difference when its doing that good???
wait for their true quad core with the 45nm if you really want something.. two penryn on one die is gonna be insane..
and q6600 are to drop to the 500 dollar price range while e6700 should be dropped to 315 ish.. i think thats all due in april or something like that
