Lol... no seriously. They won't be making anything new for Northwood. Northwood hits 3.4 and stops there for good (according to this forum).

Who knows, maybe they can remodify a Prescott to use little power, but that might decrease it's performance and stability. Just wait for now or get Northwood Extreme Edition when it's prices drops.
