Nehalem is amazing from a hardware point of view, but you have to sit back and ask yourself if the current software will justify it as an upgrade and the answer is that it won't. Penyrn and Conroe still aren't used to their full capability. Nothing really needs 8 threads atm, the only thing that likes 4 threads is my ubuntu installation.

Personally I'll hang on until the shrink to 32nm of Nehalem to even remotely consider an upgrade....

its the old debate again of hardware dev over software dev...but i'm not turning another thread into this as I think ive made my point time and time again...what I will say though is "I wonder if the Overclocking potential is any good" ....joking...who needs it with those numbers....

I'm not really excited about nehalem. I know that sounds bad but it just isn't exciting enough. Yet.

Like everyone has said once the software utilises it I'll jump on, hopefully by then the prices will have dropped too.

What was this about dx11 using all available cores? If that is true this hardware will be worth owning.

I read about that a few weeks back. Somehow I can't see it really taking advantage of 8 threads though...

Penryn/Conroe will be fine for another year or two.

Im no fan of Intel hardware to be honest but I did buy an Intel Q6600 which is a disaster. Ive gone through 4 motherboards for it since febuary and am awaitiong Komplett to test the last RMA'd motherboard with the past 5 weeks. But if AMD still aint keeping up by the time Intel goes 32nm I will certainly move to the 32NM CPU.

4 mobos eh? Well I went thrhough 5 with my last AMD build (dodgy Enermax PSU kept killing them!!) I caant see AMD being close to 32nm any time soon, their desktop chips still sit at 65nm, right enough ATi are ahead of nVidia but I doubt they will will top Intel

I do. DirectX 11 is multithreaded. Only problem is, Nehalem is still 4 cores and an 8 core wanabe.

IBM and AMD are already working on 22nm process.
