i didn't think so, like there isn't that many good quality quad chips out there so it will prob be a little under 2 years before they come out

I wouldn't be surprised if we see a octo core cpu around late 08 or early 09. Whenever it does come out it will probably be around $1000.

Hopefully the first Octo cores that come out will be native, I highly doubt they will be though .

Octo cores would be a major waste at this point though. Heck most programs barely use dual cores. I'm not even fully utilizing my quad core atm.

That's what everyone said about dual-core two years ago when I bought my single core. Now I wish I had gone dual back then.
