It was current sept 27 07 and i posted it in nov 1 07. so it was as current as I could give it.

I don't deny the prices but I saw something that said Jan 20th not the 8th and it was more recent, this Penryn chart is 3 months old. Wolfsdale overclock really nice even though its a sample, 4.7 on air can't wait for water benchmarks.

Its expected in January 2008 that there will be a $266 penryn dual core with 6MB of L2 cache, and a $316 quad core variant with 12Mb of L2 cache. Google it.
why people can not link to source I dunno, well I can not see the links on google as you did not give the search string you had google parse for ya... >.>... still... the technology to produce smaller circuits costs more... that's why I doubt you will see such cheap processors with in the next year on the 45 nanometer technology =/.
actully moving to the 45nm saves money for intel. You can fit more cores per 300mm wafer than you can with a 65nm process. The cost is moving to the process once its setup you save alot of money actully.

Can anyone give me advice as to how to go about achieving a 3.6ghz clock?
No but here`s how to get 4.5Ghz

Hey guys, i've been thinking about overclocking my qx9650 when it arrives (pre-ordered) but to be honest i'm not sure how to go about it. I've been reading up on OC'ing - but i've read stuff where they haven't changed voltages and achieved 3.6ghz (what i'm overclocking to) and some that have changed voltages etc...

The system i'll be running is
Mobo: Asus Maximus Formula SE
Ram: 4Gb Team Xtreem PC8500/1066
CPU: QX9650

Can anyone give me advice as to how to go about achieving a 3.6ghz clock?

I doubt you will see anything soon under $300 that is at 45 nano meters. Still looks good, but question comes to usage really... I have a Core 2 Extreme currently (not overclocked QX6700 and is very very cold) and pushing the CPU above 50% is quite hard with even the latest games at full graphics and processing... basically a dual core at 2.66 GHz could handle the latest games at full power without too much of a problem. So if people need to get such a processor I think it's needs consideration of what you are actually getting and why you are getting it. It is of course the step in the right direction for the market but I would not advise people to spend the huge amounts of money for such a processor unless they know exactly why they are getting it ^^;;.

Except crysis, which gets a very nice boost with 4 cores over 2 .

Will there be anything Penryn related for under $300 that will work on a Gigabyte GA-965p-DS3?

Price? Availability?

Any other models coming out of Penryn like an x9600 or something that will be sub 400 dollars?

The lower power consumption and virtualisation improvements make Penryn really interesting for the server Xeons. Actually lower power consumption is good for everyone, including Folding@Home. This launch kind of has something for everyone .
