Intel Roadmap indicates multiple Havendale incoming Q3′09 Intel roadmap
 
Previously we reported that Intel plans to release Bloomfield for their high-end before the end of 2008, and that Lynnfield can be expected sometime later in 2009. However Expreview has managed to get their hands on an updated Intel roadmap that clarifies Intel's releases well into 2009.
 
According to the roadmap the first half of 2009 will be relatively quiet until Lynnfield and Havendale roll out in Q3. Lynnfield, is reportedly going to be Intel's midrange chip with a focus on performance and effectively takes over Wolfdale. Havendale will be dual-core and will cover the value to midrange market. Interestingly, Havendale features the integrated graphics and memory controller. Could this mean that we may be seeing a CPU+IGP chip soon?  I have included a slide illustrating Lynnfield and Havondale's key features below:

It looks to be a very decent lineup from Intel, but I can't help wondering how AMD are going to fair in light of Nehalem

Yep. Everything looks pretty good to me.

Usually, that is the case. RMAs. Usually they are pretty quick, and test it as soon as they get it anyway, so it shouldn't be a huge delay. 4 or 5 days usually.

Just to stick a big pair of hands in the middle here and interupt things..

If ur ok spending 1k+ on pc components, I`d want the best gfx card.

/2ȼ, if u posed "build me the best pc for 1k" u`d probably get a slightly different line-up.

You see, what I have been recommending and what I would have recommended in the first place are COMPLETELY different. It is only because Jay doesn't want a P45 board for instance, which is what I would recommend in the first place.

And he needs his video card for video, nog gaming. So anything stronger than the 4850 would be a waste.

And jaysbarbq, if you can purchase the components at a local store for not much of a price difference (my standard is 10% increase max.), I'd do it. The local store over here has great support and would probably give me a temporary card if something went wrong and then handle the RMA with their supplier. Only problem is my local store cannot supply about half of the computer components regularly used :( For example: it cannot supply Zalman or GigaByte

Folks,

Most of the items below arrived today. The rest I will collect tomorrow.

I need to test this all whilst in the UK before I take it back to Spain with me (I work from Spain).

Any tips on what/how I should test everything would be appreciated. Apart from that, building the pc is a breeze, installing the O/S on a RAID 1 set is also easy. Any tips on the setup of the Rampage Formula (i.e BIOS / Asus software)?

2 x 4 GB Kingston 8500 1066mhz HyperX memory modules
1 x SATA Sony DRU-190S 20x DVDRW Black & Silver Bezel Retail
1 x SATA LiteOn 20x Int. L/S DVDRW LS-20A1L-14C
1 x Intel core 2 quad Q9450 2,66GHZ 1333FSB
2 x Samsung Spinpoint F1 HD103UK 1TB 32MB cache SATA HD's
1 x ATI 4850HD
1 x Asus Rampage Formula board
1 x Antex Nine Hundred 900 case
1 x Corsair 750w TX PSU
1 x Toshiba external 320 drive
1 x Trust graphics pad
1 x Logitech keyborad & mouse S510
1 x interal USB card reader
1 x Noctua NH-U12P fan

* I already have a Sumsung 226 monitor and external USB floppy as well as O/S (Vista Ultimate and WIndows XP (32 and 64bit))

It is great to see that you finally have everything! The settings in the BIOS are pretty complex for beginners. My advice is to set the memory quite a bit below the requirement first, and overclock the processor first, bringing the multiplier down when you get to high FSBs, and not bringing the voltage past 1.4v. Check that you have mounted the cooler properly (you should have really cool temps at stock). Also make sure that you never leave any settings on auto. To start, put them all at their lowest settings. Feel free to PM me if you want!

Folks,

Glad to see it's sunny in London! Although not the 35 degrees as it is in Spain!

I have all the parts except the board :( If it does not arrive by Monday I will have no option but to order online or ask my supplier what he has in stock). My guess is that he has all Gigabyte and MSI boards. I leave the UK on Wednesday and desperately need to build and test the machine before I return to Spain. So worse case - if the Asus Rampage does not materialise on Monday, should I order online, hope it arrives on Tues morning and spend a few hours testing before I leave on Wednesday? or try an MSI or Gigabyte?

Finally, I was most shocked when I say the Noctua fan that Lamboman reccomended!! I have always seen the small fans on AMD and P4 cpus. The Notcua fan reccomended and received is the size of a windmill!!! Hope it fits in this Antec 900 case.

Also the case has 3 fans, the CPU will have 1 fan, the GPU has 1 fan and I guess the Corsair power supply has 1 fan... Will this sound like an F1 engine in my office?? And with so many fans, will the pc not take off???!!!!

Yup, the enthusiast coolers are always huge. The system shouldn't be that loud if you set the case fans to minimum. The power supply is virtually silent, and the graphics card won't be that loud either.
