I thought there was going to be a octo-core nehalem chip... I can't wait to get one of these. To bad there will be something even better coming out by the time I could afford it.

Yes I know it isn't octo core, I said "'effectively' octo core". Meaning it will be like having 8 cores...

Memory controller on the cpu. Thats why. But dont fear, at the rate AMD is putting out stuff, it'll be late '09 before Intel bothers releasing affordable nehalem stuff.

but it's not....hyperthreading is much different. Part of a core working on a single process thread is not the same as having a dedicated core to a thread

It may sound like I'm just trying to pin you on a technicality but there is, in fact, quite a big difference between the 2.
