    Exactly, even if it was $50 what exactly am I supposed to do with it. No motherboard, no drivers and likely poor Windows support for big.little at the moment.

    It can be your precious until there are motherboards for it. :D

    From what I recall, motherboards often hit the market before the CPU. You might still be waiting for one to be released but you won't wait as long as you would for the CPU to be officially released.

    Still, I wouldn't buy it. Too many risks.

    Probably a bootleg CPU of some kind, since no one can prove it's *not* what it claims to be....;) That's the reason we have locked CPUs today...so much remarking was going on the Chinese markets. Another positive we can thank the Chinese for:rolleyes:

    Sure, it was all the remarking, not the fact that Intel was losing money on high-end chip sales because people were OCing low end ones to get nearly identical speeds. OC'ing was insane before they locked it down, so many little tricks to get that one more multiplier click out of that mid-range chip.

    I don't want to be the poor sucker that's got to code my game around these 'little' cores. Leave big.little to portables, please. It has little to no use in a desktop, as most people buy a desktop due to it's upgrade path or the fact that it's cheap and easy to repair, or don't want to be confined to a tiny laptop etc.
    I wouldn't buy a mixed chip unless I had absolutely no choice (for example, the bulldozer days you had to buy intel, or when you HAD to buy AMD because intel was stuck on northwood/prescott arch).
