Originally scheduled to launch in November or December this year, Intel's Nehalem-based Bloomfield processors will now launch in September along with X58 chipsets, sources at motherboard makers have revealed.

However, the sources pointed out that CPUs and motherboards will not officially appear in the channel until early October.

Since Bloomfield CPUs are not socket compatible with previous Intel platforms, the accelerated launch is not expected to cause competition between the company's own products, although the same cannot be said for AMD's scheduled AM3-based CPU launch, noted the sources.

They'll have three chips for release... a mainstream (2.66ghz), performance(2.9ghz), and enthusiast chip(3.2ghz+).

The mainstream chip is said to be under $300.

You have some sort of deadline to meet to replace your pc workingman? Personally, as much as you've been wanting this, I'd wait for it to come out. hehee. I think it might even be worthwhile to see how AMD's new cpus will be. If they can shrink their dies down, they have a better design IMO. Besides, I'm all for supporting the underdog. It would be bad for the consumer in the long run if Intel became the only cpu manufacturer. I'm thinking in terms of value and quality. No competition means bad things.

I will finally order when Nehalem is available.  From what I can figure (computer challenged) this combo will be really fast.  I was going to order a unit a month or so ago but I was worried all present mobo will be obsolete with this release.  Is that right?

  nope, no deadline..but my computer is old...with a pentium four...and an envidia 6800 gtx vid card...its ok...for what i use it for...but i have been looking for a new one for quite some time..and im looking for a prety powerful one...one that will last me for maybe 4 more years...and i have been salivating over dso rigs for a while....but the cost has always been a factor...until february when my gas hog suv is paid off..then i can apply those payments to a new rig...is there a deadline..maybe in my mind it has already past....so i will get a new rig as soon as i can afford it..in february...if i could pull 7-8k out of thin air would have ordered the rig two yrs ago..lmao..Smile

and personally i think if amd doesnt start pulling some rabbits out of their hats..there is no competition already....not at the high end level anyway...and i agree with you no competition is a bad thing..but looks like intel maybe way to far ahead for them to catch up.....ive never liked amd ..ati...but i would shudder to think what the prices would be without them..Shocked

Actually I prefer AMDs cpu architecture, but they need to get 45nm tech into their dies. Intel nehelem is similar to a hybrid sort of AMD. (a tad ironic I think)
If AMD can launch their next gen cpus it has greater potential than Intel's nehelem. Instead of tri channel memory support, it will be able to support quad channel memory. That would be a huge performance boost, if they can break into 45nm tech.
