Intel Woodcrest has a 65W TDP

The Intel Woodcrest looks better than planned. It was expected to have a 80W TDP but now it turns out it's only 65W:
The new cores were pulled in to the third week of June because the latest stepping came in better than expected.

What I mean by better is almost bug free, runs faster than expected, and takes less power. The bug-free bit enabled a pull-in of the launch dates, if you don't need another stepping, you don't need another stepping. Faster is a little less obvious, I am told you basically need two steppings, side by side to see the difference and, even then, don't look for big numbers.
More details over here.

That's nice but they STILL aren't in our hands yet...

But I suppose that's why Intel stock is where it is, right?
