  1. Intel has confirmed it will launch its first 32nm processors for desktops and laptops on January 7 at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. A total of 17 processors will be revealed in a variety of speeds, including new Core i3 and Core i5 parts that will join their older and more powerful Core i7 siblings.

    AMD really needs to work on their quad's and make something more competitive. I also hope that their new 6 core CPU will be able to compete with intel's core i7 (i'm pretty sure it won't be able to compete with the core i9's). Intel needs the competition and we need our price drops!

    Maybe these will finally replace all the core2 duos still being shipping in laptops/desktops

    Great... More chipsets. I was reading a post about this on techspot a while ago and someone once said "intel make their money by ripping compays off with new chipsets" or something like that, I believe it may be coming true.

    No the chipsets are required to use the on-die GPU so there is a valid reason for releasing them.
  6. Hahaha, are you serious? "nooooooo! new chipsets to support new architectures! we should just shove Core i3 parts into old 775 boards!!!!" This is why I hate tech sites, people trying to sound informed but spouting meaningless gibberish.

    Forget about the chipsets, thank god intel didn't pull out another socket for these models.
  8. AMD could be competitive, but unfortunately Intel prevents any real competition from occurring through shady dealings and patents.
