These priced are much better than what most people expected. i7 2600K cost only $317, but most people though it is going to be priced over $500
I also surprised that 2500K cost only $11 more than 2500
EDIT: Also, the S models which have lower TDP are better priced than what I expected

No, the article says that Celeron 1.2Ghz (based on 45nm Core 2) is faster than Zocate dual core 1.6GHz in CPU bond benchmarks.
The article says that Zocate had slightly better graphic performance than Nvidia Ion (which was used by celeron 1.2GHz). But the CPU it self is slower than Celeron
Intel will launch its next-generation Sandy Bridge chip line on January 5 at the Consumer Electronics Show, the chipmaker confirmed today.
The launch will take place at Venetion Hotel in Las Vegas. Mooly Eden, Intel vice president and general manager for PC Client Group, along with "surprise guests, will showcase the world's fastest processor with many new technologies Intel has built into our chips to enhance the 'visual life,'" Intel said in a...

The 6870 has 1120 shaders. So far the 6970 is rumored to have 1536 shaders. Feel free to check me if I'm wrong but I figured it would go like this:
1120 = 100% = 11.2% per core
11.2 * 1536 = ~172% or a 72% increase in performance (if core speeds...

Thanks for posting it though My pocket is going to hate you though as I see this one being super expensive but I must have the top Bulldozer product lol

Module = 2 Cores
2MB per module means that the 8 core model has a total of 8MB L2 cache
AMD reportedly may delay the production of its latest Fusion accelerate processing unit (APU) codenamed Llano from the company's original schedule of the first half 2011 to July of 2011 and mass production is unlikely to start until August or September due to Globalfoundries' lower-than-expected yield rate for its 32nm process, according to sources from motherboard players. In response to the rumor, AMD declined to comment on unannounced products.
