Intel Core i3 Clarkdale leaked..

I'm unsure if this was posted, but I picked up this month's CPC and found this article in it, thought it'd be worth the mention.

bit-tech.net | Intel Core i3 Clarkdale details leaked

What do you reckon? I was contemplating going all out on an i7 920 + motherboard, but I'm very tempted to wait and see.

Not much sense in waiting it out if you aren't in need of the on-chip GPU.

I'd say go for the 920. It just doesn't look like I7 will be beat in terms of performance for some time. At least until AMD comes up with something a little better and forces Intels hand..

It's true. I'm still using an AM2 4600+, but the switch to Intel seems inevitable. i7 it is, but there's no arguing with those prices. =]
