Yea I understand that... but are there any big performance differences? If not, then it doesn't sound like a big deal to me.

They can put anything they want in their prerelease hype. I'm asking if there are any real world benchmarks proving that a processor with multithreading is worse or better than the same proc or a similarly performing one with physical multiple cores.

ahh you were talking about multithreading.

I'm not sure...you'd have to google some old p4 benchmarks but I would imagine that any kind of organized allocation of tasks to cores would improve efficiency.

Well one thing is that nehalem will have a 32nm die shrink with their tick tock thingy. 45nm nehalem then 32nm nehalems in 09. I'm guessing my q6600 will last until then.

Well I'll keep my q6600 until I can get a yorkie for a good price.

lol I'm probably going to do that as well unless the yorkfields really drop down in price. I figure I'll hold off until Nehalem, and then I'll do a major upgrade: CPU, mobo, RAM, GPU, possibly water cooling too.
