Mhmm...Folding...Folding...

When I do go C2D, this will be my CPU of choice.

The QX6700 will be around $1000 but I believe the 2.4GHz QX6600 will be around $500 or so.

Lol, thats what I posted this thread about >>> The pricing is in the first post. Oh and your wrong about the price of the Q6600 unless you mean 2007.

But, Burn.....this is a Core 2 Quad, not a Core 2 Duo

I Would wait until we are a little closer to release to get a solid feel on pricing, however, it does seem to be consistent. The original price leaks seemed more....hopeful. Intel WANTS everyone to buy the C2D CPUs, so they were priced to move. These quad cores are targeted at the high end user market and so they may not see a need to sell at discount prices. I wasn't planning on a Kentsfield till first part of 07 anyway, so we'll see what the prices are like then, and if the estimates for the Octo core Yorkfields are still end of 07. If so, I'll wait for Octo, since those will certainly need new motherboards, I'll have to save my pennies for that.

The more I think about the 100c temp the more it bothers me.
Is that the standard op temp or the max temp of the QuadCore?
Even with phase it would be tough keeping the temps cool...

I dont see how a processor with only 120W TDP can have an operating temperature of 100C. It may be able to HANDLE it, but calling it 'standard temp' is something different. Its simply not that hard to get rid of 120W of heat.


As far as the 800+ pricetag goes, I dont think many people here were planning on Kentsfield until after christmas and into "Vista Age". At least, that was my plan, to wait until after Christmas rush, get some cash saved up, and see if its really worth the cost (or just use a regular C2D until true quad/octo core comes out). I wouldnt want to jump above the 500 dollar price point, and hopefully even if I do fall back on a C2D, I hope that it will be strong enough (overclocked) to handle all the power of an R600.

My bad. I got it mixed up with the rumored Q6400.

100C is the thermal spec for Kentsfield, meaning its maximum safe running temperature. It puts out less heat than a Pentium D, so cooling it shouldnt be a problem.

Why would a cpu (epsically an OC'ed C2D) not be able to handle R600, I bet it could handle 2 in XFire easily, cpu has little effect on most games at semi-high res (1280x1024+)

You misunderstood me- The Core 2 Duo architecture, but in quad-core flavor

the Kentsfield is two c2d dyes stuk on one cpu, this to me seems like intel rushing to be the first on the market with quadcores, an initial hype will surround it when it comes out however i dont think it will last long as its clearly problematic flaws come about. its extremely high temperatures needs to be sorted out and the high wattage is an issue (even though its not relaly that high). im dying to upgrade my pc but i want to wait till the right time, i think i wll be buying a new gfx card bfore im gettig a new CPU. i wouldnt be throughing away my c2d yet (if i had one).
