Default Intel Looks Into Early Sales of Lynnfield Chips in Taiwan

Lynnfield's in the wild.

Intel Looks Into Early Sales of Lynnfield Chips in Taiwan - PC World

Intel is looking into how the first versions of its Lynnfield processors ended up on sale in Taiwan several weeks before they were supposed to, preempting the company's plans to roll out the new chips.

Lynnfield chips, which will be sold under the Core i5 and Core i7 brands, are versions of Intel's Nehalem processor family designed for use in consumer desktops. The chips are meant to bring Nehalem from the high-end of the desktop PC market into the mainstream.

The release of the processors for sale to consumers was meant to happen on Sept. 8 but, in a rare example of Intel apparently losing control over its sales and distribution channel, the chips ended up on sale in Taiwanese shops last week.
Get em while they are hot. It will be nice to see what the retail cpu's are capable of doing.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

Like are they skipping the core 2 quads for mainstream? Right now the core 2 duo's are still mainstream in pre-builts or are they still talking about for pc builders?
