Intel quad QX6800 coming next week
Hot, low quantity but fast

WORD HAS REACHED our tender ears that the Intel's quad-core QX6800 will be floating around sooner than you think unless you think it will be here before next Monday. When it arrives, it will not be without flaws however. This release puzzles me for two reasons. First is that it isn't needed at all, AMD has no part that is quad-ish in one socket, so where is the threat? The other problem? Power, this one is said to blow out the 120W limit and then some.
We are told that the NDA goes up on the QX6800 Monday, the samples floating everywhere now are 2.93GHz on a 1066FSB, basically matching the current X6800 clock for clock. There will be two of them though, so it should be a great gaming part.
The first snag is volume. Intel is basically warning OEMs to not expect many if any. Q2 production will be in the low thousands, not tens of thousands of parts.
The curious bit is that with a lack of competitors, why do this? If they don't price it above the QX6700, all they will do is drive the price on their volume parts down. What's to gain other than lost margins? I don't get it.
The next one is also puzzling in light of the market not needing the performance. We hear the parts are going to be closer to 150W than 120W initially. If you think about it, Kentsfield at 120W is 2x 65W 2.67GHz Conroes. 2.93 Conroes are 80W, so two of them minus a little is about 150W. The math works out.
The real QX6800s will come out in Q3 with a new stepping of the core Core number core numeral 2. This new stepping will drop power we are told 'substantially', and pave the way for volume QX6800 production. It also bodes well for a dual core speed bump, but that may not be in the marketing cards.
So in the end you are less than a week away from a hot and scarce part. This market may not care at all about the power draw but the scarcity is going to be more an issue. Then again, they only make so many Ferraris, and those get fairly bad gas mileage but no one complains. µ
Hot on the heals of the holiday weekend, Intel is launching a new flagship quad-core processor targeted at hardcore power users and PC enthusiasts. As its name implies, the new Core 2 Extreme QX6800 has frequency parity with its dual-core counterpart, the Core 2 Extreme X6800 – sans the "Q". At 2.93GHz this makes the Core 2 Extreme QX6800 Intel's highest clocked quad-core desktop processor to date.
Other than its higher frequency though, the Core 2 Extreme QX6800 doesn't differ from Intel's previous high-end quad-core processor, the 2.66GHz Core 2 Extreme QX6700, in any way. But what the QX6800's higher core frequency offers is an answer to any performance advantage the higher clocked X6800 had when running single-threaded applications.
To see just how much power the new Core 2 Extreme QX6800 had lurking under its unassuming heat spreader, we installed one into a 975X-based test bed an took it for a spin. Read on to see how it did. Just hide your tax return or your going to want to give Big Blue a big chunk of what Uncle Sam just gave back.

Ahhh y como cumplo para vos her info sobre QX6850
Intel plans QX6850 3.0GHz FSB1333 Quote:
Challenged by the AMD Quad Core processors due out in the third quarter, in addition to the price slash strategy, Intel plans to further strengthen its leadership by releasing 1333MHz FSB Kentsfield Quad-Core processors. Coupled with the upcoming X38 chipset, Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 will provide the most powerful thrust for those gamers, digital design professionals and enthusiasts who crave the highest performing computers they can get their hands on.
Intel Core 2 Extreme processor QX6800 runs at 2.93 GHz; features include: 4MBx2 L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB and 130W TDP. To seize the market, Intel has launched QX6800 in the earlier time this month, much advanced than the original schedule. The processor is available now at a cost of US$1,199, a bit higher than the previous plan at US$999.
For the match up with the X38 chipset, which supports 1333MHz FSB, Intel also plans to release Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 running at 1333MHx FSB in the third quarter. Running at 3 GHz, QX6850 features 4MBx2 L2 Cache and 130W TDP. The processor is set at a cost of US$999. At the time QX6850 is released, QX6800 is set at a lowered cost at US$999 as well.
