Granite Bay Is Going To Be Expensive
This Inquirer article talks about Granite Bay mobos being twice as expensive as usual. While $300 is probably too high as U.S. price, something around $200 for a barebones GB, $250 with all the bells and whistles is probably likely.
The impression I get is that Intel wants to sell 845PEs for Christmas, and doesn't want to bring dual channel to the masses until Springfield next, well, spring.
From a bang-for-the-buck perspective, it's hard to justify an additional $100 for about a 7% performance improvement.
so I guess I can't get an Asus granite bay board in Xmas.
