I saw this posted on a couple of sites just a bit ago, and HardOCP even has an official company memo on this to verify the data. It would seem the end of the GHz race is finally here, with Intel pulling back on their speed rush. It was inevitable I think that would happen as we have seen the heat and power consumption on the Prescott core going up and up. Even their latest processor release coming next month will stay below the currently available processors' frequencies.
