Thanks wolf, but I was interested specifically in something I saw on the inq, they say the 2 core, 4 core and 8 core are coming "in late" and that's it, is there a date in the slides? Specifically I want to know about the 8 core desktop/enthusiast chips.

Bloomfield/Lynnfield Nehalem-EP (Native Quad-Core) Q3 08
Dunnington (Native Hexa-Core for old FSB) Q3 08
Nehalem-EX Beckton (Native-Eight-Core-Nehalem) H2 09

Dunnington only for MP-Boards (4 Sockets)
Nehalem-EP is for Single- and Dual-Socket-Configurations.
There is no Beckton planned for DP-Boards or Desktop, big Server-Iron only.
