Ah that's not so bad then, it's probably just Intel's jump to name-branding that's throwing me and a few others.

i9 an advance on i7, i7 being discontinued - doesn't sound like too big a deal.

So it's gonna be 775 being renamed to i3?

i5 is socket 1156, step between core 2 and i7

i7 is extreme only

i9 is hex cores on the same socket as i7

Let me find the chart
Silverstone SG05B | i3 530 | Scythe Shuriken | DFI LanParty MI P55-T36 | 4GB Kingston HyperX 1333Mhz | XFX 5450 512MB | Samsung SN-T083C | Intel X25-V 40GB | Samsung F1 1TB

LGW2452TX-PF | Logitech G9 | Logitech G15 | Logitech Z5500

Never really liked the new i7 line up anyway. Looks like time for AMD to take the lead again.

Yup, have to agree.. We can't just say AMD to take the lead again because we don't like an Intel line-up if they are still superior. AMD still need to catch up a touch and I hope they do.

I'm just waiting for some 32nm dual cores to clock the *******s off to be honest. It's all I want

Maybe AMD are catching up and forcing Intel to move on with the releases. Would certainly explain the switch in product.

When are these new processors coming out?

What to buy, when to buy, and how long to wait...the only 3 questions stopping my buying a new rig tbh...
