The new Core 2 Extreme QX9775 will have a high clock frequency of 3.2GHz, utilizing a 1600MHz FSB. The CPU won't be a lightweight on your pocketbook at $1500. That price, while obscene, is probably largely due to the CPU being essentially the quad-core Xeon family, and will be able to support multiple physical CPUs.
Typically the super high end desktop CPUs do not sell much, so clearly Intel is trying to keep attention away from the impending release of Phenom.
