Crytek may have a different opinion on this one.

This might be great for servers but not for us gamers.
All games using the unreal engine 3 have at least quad core support (possibly more), and UT3 shows a significant performance boost with c2q vs c2d both at the same speed.

Amd should say screw the 6-core and move straight to the 8-core to be ahead of intel

<--- core whore

all the more to fold with!!!

Are all of intel's new processors going to be 45nm?

I am a little gun shy of the 45nm procs right now, with the voltage problems they are having.

There are no voltage problems. The "problem" is that the 45nm procs can't take as much as the 65nm procs, which makes sense because stock voltage is lower. If you were to run an Athlon at a voltage that the wolfdales are dying at (in terms of percentage increase), the Athlon would be running at 1.6V - that was never advised.

Yeah, all gonna be 45nm. 32nm next year; if not, then the year after.

I don't think it is an addiction. You are either getting better or you are getting worse, you NEVER stay the same.

Everytime I have purchased a PC I have said this same thing to myself only to see my parts outdated in 6 months or sooner. Don't forget we were just two years ago we were buying single core CPU's.
