Combining unprecedented security, performance and energy efficiency, Intel Corporation today launched the Intel® Xeon® Processor 5600 series. The new processors deliver two new security features -- Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI), and Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) -- that enable faster encryption and decryption performance for more secure transactions and virtualized environments, providing data centers with a stronger foundation for cloud security.

Looks like the X5650 is already listed on provantage for $1025.50. Close enough to the 980X pricing, though you do lose some clock speed but gain the ability to use more than one.

3.33 -> 2.66 is a fair bit.

Indeed. Not many other options to go with though, if you need two processors.

E5620 looks like it will be the cpu to get to have a quad-core 32nm. I wonder how well they would overclock. Still gets full 12MB L3 too. Sounds like it would be fun...

Yeah, that was just like I though also. Though even those lowest models are still too expensive. :(
