As many of you may have heard, Intel is coming out with it's new processors at the end of July. The Core 2 Duo and Extreme are set to hit the shelves on July 27th. Here is an article about those processors on Anandtech. http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/sh ... spx?i=2795

Here is the AMAZING thing. The midline Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.40GHz 4MB $316
is FASTER than AMD's flagship Athlon 64 FX 62 costing more that $1000. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819103861

Also, it seems that with quality airflow, the Intel processors can be overclocked quite easily.
It may be time for me to upgrade to PCi Express and also to SLi. With the AMAZING numbers from these processors, it will not cost an arm and a leg either.
Oh, and for the Mac peeps, the Core 2 Duo that will go in Macs will have a higher FSB speed than the PC counterparts, so they should be faster off the shelf.
