I know it's too early to tell, but what are peoples guesses as fast, cheap, cool as these mobos/CPUs working with OSX86?
Lynnfield is a codename for the new CPUs based on the Nehalem architecture by Intel.
Core i7 860 is 2.80GHz 4 cores 8 threads. USD $284 MSRP. Official lunch date is Sep 6th, 2009. (Ship date: late Aug!)
Core i5 750 is 2.66GHz 4 cores 4 threads. USD $196 MSRP. Official lunch date is Sep 6th, 2009. (Ship date: late Aug!)
Better than i7 920: 95W=Low power consumption+heat+noise!, LGA1156=long lasting, No northbridge=cheap!
P55 is a new chip-set name for the motherboards. (cheaper than the X58 motherboards)
Almost every motherboards companies now are pretty ready to ship at the middle of August 2009. (Also, m-ATX size!)
You can even find the specific model number & pictures of the motherboards (Gigabyte: GA-P55M-UD4, Asus: P7P55 , DFI, MSI, Foxconn and etc.) Many of them just use ICH10R? PCH? for southbridge, ALC88X for sound, and RTL811XX for LAN.
How do you guys think? Please reply your opinion. Do you think it is possible to install OS X? (both retail or another)
