As we can read in XBits, Intel plans to brings forward the introduction of five new six-core Core i7 cpus.
In the third quarter of this year Intel plans to release its Core i7-970, which will work at 3.20GHz and will not cost $999.
The Core i7-990X will offer replacement for the Core i7-980X in the fourth quarter of the year.
"In the third quarter of this year Intel also plans to release its Core i7-970 chip, which will work at 3.20GHz and will not cost $999. However, in the fourth quarter of the year Intel plans to reveal a rather mysterious chip currently marked as “≥i7-970” (meaning faster than the model 970). It remains to be seen what will be the difference between the “≥i7-970” and the current i7-980X as logically they should have the same feature-set as well as the same clock-speed and the only natural difference between Extreme and non-Extreme is the unlocked clock-speed multiplier on the former."
Woah, this could mean a new attempt for next world's fastest OC....
