The quad-core 1333 MHz front-side-bus upgrade is initially limited to Intel’s Core 2 Extreme. Intel expects to debut its Core 2 Extreme QX6850 next quarter to the tune of 3.0 GHz, similar to the upcoming Core 2 Duo E6850. The

By the way you talk, you didn't pay $999 for a processor, so don't complain. It's all simple economics, when there's a new part, there's low supply, high demand, the price is high. The healthy competition between AMD and Intel has made dual core processors under $100, I'd say that's a bargain for most individuals that don't need a quad core extreme.

then buy the 100 dollar one and let someone else pay 1k for the expensive one, and stop complaining. A price can never be unfair unless a monopoly exists, and in this case, it doesn't. An ologopoly is close, but the stress these two companies are under to complete keeps their products resonably priced and of high quality.
If you really, really, really, really want that 1k chip, just wait a year and it will be 200 or less.
