Don't Want to Build a Gulftown PC? Buy One
Intel's Core i7-980X processor (aka "Gulftown") contains a whopping six processing cores, and thanks to Intel's Hyper-Threading technology can marshal up to 12 threads simultaneously. That's some serious performance potential. But the CPU itself doesn't come cheap—it's priced at $999 (the same as its Extreme Edition predecessor, the Core i7-975)—so there's the possibility that you may want to use this as an excuse to get an entirely new system out of the bargain. Yes, you'll have to drop some dough—quite a lot of it, in fact—but both will give you a lot of game for your green.
Systems already built with the processor already , kind of late news but thought I'd share .
Need to update my siggy!
