Default Intel Quad Core gets speed bump next week with QX6800

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.

Do you or anyone else know anything regarind this new core stepping, supposedly to greatly diminish power requirements? Interesting that it is slated to arrive the same quarter as the Q6600 price drop to $266. It would be interesting to get this new stepping on an Q6600...
