So I'm jumping the gun a little here, but after seeing (over on AVS) pictures, err, OK, one picture, of the forthcoming 8805 along with a few snippets of info - I thought this might be a good place to start collating info - initially of course, speculation, but hopefully soon some more solid facts about this new processor. Eventually, as these come to market and some of us place these in our setups, then becoming a resource for tips and troubleshooting etc. I'll even reserve Post#2 to use as a repository for said tips etc. I'm certainly in the market for such a beast, as I've wired for 9.x.4, which this processor can do. At the moment, it's at the top of my shopping list. Rumoured to be at the same price point as the 8802A, but able to run either 7.1.6, or 9.1.4, release date in Q1 of next year. ^^^ This was seen at a trade show (I'm assuming China, due to the pricing info being in RMB). Anyone else interested in what this is going to do for us?
