We know Intel’s upcoming Nehalem is going to fairly speedy. A lot of people have gotten their hands on early silicon and it’s safe to say that it will be provide a good performance bump. One nagging question though: What will be called? Core 3? Nope.
The logo looks nice and the name is alright, but what I completely forgot about was the fact that this new architecture will be using DDR3 memory. The more expensive DDR3 memory. The prices aren’t too shabby at the moment. In fact, I used to pay $200+ CAD for just DDR2 memory. And I’m sure the prices will fall.
So with pricing a non-issue, I just need to find a real reason to upgrade my hardware.
