I ask because Netburst held around for five or six solid years, and K8 and even K8L is and will be patches to the original Clawhammer chip that come out.. when? Been a while there, too.
Yet Nehalem, another whole new architecture, after just 2 years?
Not that I'm complaining, a quicker pace of improvement is great, I'm just a little surprised. Things are moving at light speed, compared to the crawl that has been recent history.
Edit: I also need to read the forums much, much more often. Decoding the spoilers are as exciting as the reviews. :p

The higher threads thing sounds interesting. I wonder does this mean they're reintroducing something like hyperthreading? 8 threads on a C2Q would provide enough paralell power for paralell stuff to really start to take off. Whereas 4 doesn't seem like quite enough to have massive parellism.
