    Does anyone know when the 750 gets a revision?
    I want to buy one now , but I dont want to be dissappointed if a new stepping comes out with more OC headroom - in the next month.

    Will there ever be a 32nm successor to Lynnfield without the waste-of-space integrated GPU? Was looking at getting a P55 and an i5 750, but if all future upgrades are gonna have crappy integrated graphics for a price premium would I be better off with a different platform?

    No way there will always be offering without a integrated graphics.

    They are targeted for the low end.

    It is not planning any at all in the 1156. Gulftown (i7 1366) will be 32nm and six core.

    I haven't seen any roadmaps or anything showing Intel Core CPUs without the integrated graphics apart from the 6\8 core socket 1366 offerings. That's why I was questioning if a P55 platform is actually a worthwhile investment, instead of an X58 for instance.

    Well my conclusion is get the smallest i3 530 and overclock it to 4GHz and you got yourself a pretty awesome cpu...

    The pentium doesn't have HT which makes it really suffer at anything that is multi threaded... I mean its basically the same speed as the Pentium E6500... (120$ cpu...).

    And the i5s are just rip off. Might as well buy a i5 750...

    Will wait and see what the H55/H55 boards are like and what prices they will be at...

    If I can score a H55 board for $99 then i3 has a place...

    hope those estimated prices are close to actual pricing.

    If thats the case i might have to change my upgrade from an Phenom 550 X2 to an I3 530 :)

    Don't forget who these CPUs are aimed at.

    For the target market (mainstream/business), the integrated GPU is not a waste of space - it's a selling point.
    A typical SOHO/business machine doesn't need super fandango gamer graphics.

    i agree with this fully... turbo mode is a bit meh on dual cores
    if you wanna save money, get an i3, otherwise, get the i5 750... done deal
    (of course you could go amd too, just talking about the intel ones)
