It's not quite the September 6th announcement we expected, but Intel have finally come clean on their new Core i7-860, i7-870 and Core i5-750 processors, along with a cluster of new Xeon chips.  The three new Nehalem-based consumer processors run at 2.80GHz, 2.93GHz and 2.66GHz respectively, with the two Core i7 chips having four cores and eight threads each, while the Core i5 chip - which lacks Hyper Threading support - manages with four cores and four threads.
