It seems that until recently it was frowned upon for someone to stand outside of a party screaming about how much that party sucks and how much cooler they are than anyone else.  That is exactly what has been happening any time a CPU or GPU manufacturer announces a new product.  Today it is the AMD Financial Analyst day, with a lot of news from AMD being announced, including the first Shanghai reviews.  Of course, somehow timed to break at the exact same time is a story on DigiTimes about Nehalem chips becoming available soon.  The chips range from ten Xeon5500 models to seven mobile chips.  See the other models and frequencies here.

“Intel is planning to launch Xeon 5500 (Nehalem-EP) and Xeon 3500 series (Nehalem-WS) server CPUs in the first quarter of 2009, according to sources at server makers.

Intel will launch ten CPUs for the Xeon 5500 series: quad-core W5580 (3.2GHz), X5570 (2.93GHz), X5560 (2.8GHz), X5550 (2.66GHz), E5540 (2.53GHz), E5530 (2.4GHz), E5520 (2.26GHz), E5506 (2.13GHz), E5504 (2GHz) and dual-core E5502 with prices at US$1,600, US$1,386, US$1,172, US$958, US$744, US$530, US$373, US$266, US$224 and US$188 in thousand-unit tray quantities.
