Intel Core i7 hits the streets on Monday

This Monday Intel is scheduled to release its next generation processor, the Intel Core i7. While we have long since moved away from names like Pentium 4 and such it seems, there seems to be a great deal of excitement for Intel's new chip.

Early benchmarks show a pretty significant performance improvement over the previous generation. With 4 cores each with 2 hyper-threads and the memory controller now on the die, the Core i7 seems poised to offer some substantial real-world improvement.

Here's a round up of some of the reviews we've seen:
