I saw the SuperPI 1M test. I think it was like 9Seconds on 5.25GHZ from 2.66

Last time i saw a quad core onsale it was $2050. The Q6700 will be $999 in trays of 1000 units. the Q6600 i imagine will be roughly $700 in trays of 1000. All current motherboards from ASUS will support the Kentsfield with a BIOS update. Look at this article for more info: http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.aspx?i=2848
