Hmm... Yes... Shallow and pedantic.

Anyone catch a place selling one of these bad boys yet? Do you expect it to drive lower end conroes prices down at all, even 10 bucks? That would be kinda nice. Wondering how long it will take for Intel to come out with its true quad core. Everyone talks about how AMD is coming out with "true" quad core and it seems that nobody thinks Intel has any plans for a such a product, which they are obviously trying to develop.

the fact is they are not trying very hard and are deliberately cutting corners......again. one of the pitfalls of the Pentium D was that it was made of two processor dies on a chip with one core each as opposed to AMD's two cores on a single processor die. with the Core 2 Duo they rectified this to have both cores on a single die only to cut corners again and use two dies for the Core 2 Quad. in other words Intel prides beating AMD to a release date over having a well finished and well polished design. they used an identical shortcut two years in a row to make sure AMD was behind on the release of their product.

Indeed, and now that AMD knows what it's up against, I'm sure they will crank out something that will put Conroes in their place.
