Hot on the heels of our recent AMD AM2 post, Newegg sends over word that they have launched and are selling the new Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 processors!!

Newegg has the Core 2 Extreme X6800 processor available, though the price is high at $1359 currently!  To go along with the new Conroe processors, Newegg has a selection of Core 2 ready motherboards including the Intel 975XBX (the same board we used for testing) priced at $269, the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 motherboard at $149 and the Asus P5W DH Deluxe 975X motherboard priced at $269.  We’ll have a review of the P5W DH Deluxe up tomorrow as well.

If you would like to see the prices of these products at other locations, you can check out our Pricegrabber links for the Core 2 Extreme X6800, Intel 975XBX, Gigabyte 965P-DS3 and Asus P5W DH Deluxe

Those of you interested in Core 2 Duo processors will have to wait until August 7th, when those officially go on sale.
