    65w i7 860

    baiscly does anyone know wen it will come and how much it would sell for because its hard to find info on it

    Probably when westmere comes out, early 2010, if intel didn't postpone it due to lack of AMD competition. No way they can make a 860, a 2.8GHz part, with 65W TDP in 45nm.

    The last roadmap I saw had it for Q1, but I am not sure if that is a 65W version.

    The i7-860s (which you're referring to) will actually only run at 2.53GHz instead of 2.8 and has a 82W TDP not 65W.

    Due Q1, but is it worth giving up that much clockspeed for 13W? It will also cost $350, which is a $70 price premium.

    i read ht there would be a 65w variant of the i7 860 and tht it would be clocked at about 2.13ghz

    and i reckon it would be priced cheaper aswell.

    Link?

    Everything I can find points to the $50 more expensive, 82W, 2.53GHz i7 860s.

    An 'i7 810' at 2.13GHz was sighted in China, but it seems to be China-only and no TDP was given.

    And there is a 1.86GHz Lynnfield Xeon at 45W.

    i see they are working on making their naming even more confusing...

    Lucky Intel didn't go for the Core i9 convention for Gulftown...
    Wait... Didn't the Core i7 980X name create MORE confusions!?

    i3/i5/i7 are based on features, or in this case, how much is fused off. To be an i9, Gulftown would have to sport a new feature worthy of them charging a premium for, and it doesn't really. It will be good, but not architecturally all that different from Nehalem.

    When do intel need a new feature to charge a premium?
