Odd they're even calling it an I7…. why not call it what it really is? a Xeon…. a ton of cores… and clocked a pretty fair bit lower than the typical I7.

Weird why intel says that it boosts up to 4ghz. Mine only goes to 3.498 before overclocking which i would consider 3.5.

I gues it would be great choise if someone who needs to run many virtual computers on one machine. But for average gamer it is just ridiculous to buy something like this.
