when do you think 6-8 core intel chips will be in the standard i7 lineup?

not the extreme editions, but the standard $350-$400 chip

2-3 years, if that. Intel has no reason to sell them for cheap when its quad-cores are still handily beating the competition. They'll keep making people cough up the dough if they want more cores.

Wow. Very sig. Such original. So words. Wow.

I wonder what the cpu market would look like right now if Intel had proper competition.

Probably only when they have to e.g. better competition or games are more optimised for 6-8 cores.

I wonder what would be better, a really great 20 GHz processor one core, or a 8 core intel processor that utilized all 8 cores. Then which one would be better for gaming, if the intel one only use 2-4 cores at 50%.

Supposedly the low end Haswell E will come only in 6 core @ $350-$400.

That's a start

Yeah, Haswell E is sounding promising, provided all the rumors are true. Mobos will probably be expensive as hell though. X79 isn't too bad right now but it's extremely outdated.
