This new intel cpu makes a ton of sense to me. It is the same as the top of the line QX9650 quad core 45nm Penryn, but rather than run at 3GHz it runs a little slower at 2.83GHz, and it has a locked multiplier so over-clocking is a little more difficult but still possible.

With these slight differences it costs about half that of the QX9650. Nice!

Only problem is they have just not arrived in stores yet, Intel promised em by the end of March, so they should be around soon, but right now you just can't get hands on one.
