WTH is Core 3?

On the wiki page though for Nehalem..

"Overclocking Nehalem processors will only be possible with the X58 chipset. The mainstream PCH will not be capable of overclocking unless a hardware mod is found"

Gives me the feeling that intels investors decided it wasn't very profitable if cheap hardware could hit high clocks eh?

It think it may have as much to do with promoting Intel's X58 chipset as it does with limiting any attempt at an Nvidia Nforce for socket 1366.

According to an Intel employee on the XS boards, the way they had to design the boards, CPUs and the PCH in order to avoid using two mobo chips makes it impossible. According to him it's a design implication, not a choice.

Can't say I care. PCH systems are for Dells and laptops.. Doesn't everyone here have P35/P45/X38/X48 systems anyway? X58 covers all those bases.

Even if its just a "side effect" We'd have to see how much the enthusiast platform / processors sell for when they release. One would hope that its obtainable for the average ocer after a bit of time and not something along the lines of the current "extreme" quad series which still is around a thousand.

The roadmaps have been clear for a long while.. Two of the processors go in the current 45nm quad price brackets (9450 and 9550) while the most expensive one will be the same thing with slightly higher clocks and the regular unlocked multiplier, and have the QX pricetag associated with it.

The idea that Nehalem will be just Extreme Edition and the cheap ones will be locked to 'force' enthusiasts to spend $1000 on a chip is pure garbage that fudzilla started spreading, and everyone bought it.

Why don't they just focus on 2 processor setups? Ok, the more cores we throw at it the more L2 cache we get. So, for the gaming world, why don't they just make a cheap dual core CPU, armed with a nice 4 GHz processor, and about 12 MB of L2 cache? Wouldn't that be cheaper than a quad core, perform heck of a lot faster, and would make a nice change in gaming history?
