Asi Partner will have stock on the E6850 (Price at $295 Cdn) on July 17.

Thats going to be a heck of a processor.

Not as important with the newer p5k boards. It has a very high default multi as well. I paid $970 for my X6800 with an unlocked multi. I can hit close to 4ghz on air but these chips will do the same for a third of the price.

It runs at 333 x 9 Multi stock

Actually the 1333 (QDR) chips are the biggest CON intel has done in recent years. There just pre overclocked chips....nothing more.

Bigges con? Not really, they're just a new Revision which allows the core to be pushed further in FSB speed.

Just like the Q6600 that are coming out with a GO revision. This was also done with the 5xx series transition to the 6xx series and then the 6x5 series.

So, it's all a processor update which allows a few tricks.

New Revision? New power management and this time a new FSB speed, not bad but I'd rather a Q6600 for $270 myself, except I ain't buying till 2010.
