It's not that you won't be able to get hold of one in Q3, even though official release is Q4...you could get one in Q3...but you'd have to pay up the arse for them....

Also, it's not just an issue of bugs of the chips....it's an issue of bugs from the mbs', tri-channel memory,and software compatibility as well.

Add all this up and I'm getting Nehalem in '09 early along with not just the newly released but the top desktop pc mb....

The revision of the up in coming Asus Rampage Extreme....not sure what it maybe called perhaps the Asus Maximus II Extreme....instead of the Rampage Extreme's x48 chipset; the Maxi II Extreme would use x58 tri-channel DDR3 and Nehelam.

??? I don't know anyways I'll get the N-series....and I don't mean n-for nvidia....but N-for Nehalem...after the right offerings come along.

I have my eye on an E8600 for a friend of mine. He doesn't want to go quad so this would be an excellent alternative. Q9550 should also be cheaper in late Q3 and supply should be greater by that time.

What's the E8600 supposed to be clocked at, 3.33 GHz? It'll have to overclock substantially better than the E8400 to garner consideration for most consumers. I'm talking 4.0 GHz with stock voltage. I don't know if the E8500 can do this already, but I'm led to believe it can't.

I'm excited about the Q9650. I plan on buying one around April 2010, about 18 months into my rig's lifetime. By then, more games should utilize quads and the processor should be almost affordable.

As for cheaper Nehalems not being overclockable, the article I read said it would have to do with the on-die memory controller. I don't quite understand this being an issue since AMD already uses an on-die memory controller and their processors are overclockable. The article said the processor will talk with something else (I think the memory) and the two will ensure the processor is running at stock specs. Something tells me a stock Nehalem processor will still be very good.

just a FYI, 99% of the consumers don't know what overclocking is...

Even without knowing about overclocking, the difference in performance from 3.0 GHz to 3.33 GHz won't be worth the premium price.
