Intel Ready to Release Release 3.5GHz E8700 Core2 Duo CPU

DailyTech has a story up about the imminent release of a new, top of the line dual-core CPU from Intel. The nice thing about this is that this will probably cause a price reduction for the existing lower end CPUs (such as the E8400, E8500, etc.)

I still think you should strongly consider a new Core i7 920 for a new machine right, now, but it is hard to argue with the extremely low price for a fast Core2 Duo, with very cheap DDR2 RAM to go with it. It really depends on your workload.
