Core 2 Extreme quad-core for desktops
Sep 29, 2006

Just as I was talking myself into a new PC based on the performance gains of Core 2 Duo chips, Intel announces quad-core coming in November. Will these offer another dramatic increase in performance? I know one can endlessly wait for the new technology around the corner, but November doesn't seem that far away. Should I wait? Will quad-core be of any use when running XP Pro and CS2?
