Intel's Nehalem-based Core i7 processors  - Intel's Nehalem-based Core i7 processors

"Intel's new Core i7 series of processors is a modern marvel of technology that brings previously inaccessible performance to the consumer. In areas where multi-threaded applications are dominant, heavy multi-tasking is the norm or multimedia encoding is the primary function, the move to a HyperThreaded Core i7 part is a no brainer.
But Intel's biggest problem might not have anything to do with AMD or another outside source: the fact is that the Core 2 Quad processors are still fantastic performers, widely available and pretty damn cheap. Anyone that has a quad-core system will likely not find a compelling performance benefit to upgrade from it to a Core i7 unless they subscribe to one of the usage models mentioned above. Intel has definitely attempted to curb this dilemma with the introduction of the $284 Core i7-920 and I think that this CPU will find its way into many of our reader's machines."
