Rumor: Intel Launching Core i5, i7 September 8

According to Digitimes' sources at motherboard makers, Intel's upcoming Core i5-750, Core i7-860 and Core i7-870 CPUs as well as P55 chipsets will be announced on September 8.

While the upcoming Lynnfield platform parts haven't officially been launched yet, some retailers have already received new Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs and are already selling them, much to Intel's chagrin.

Either way, motherboard makers are excited for the new Intel P55 chipset as it is expected to boost sales by 15 to 20 percent in the fourth quarter. P55 boards are expected to make up one fifth of total shipments by the end of the year.

    The i5 750 and the i7 860 has been out for retail sale in Taiwan for about 3 weeks now, been for retail sale in Australia, Europe for a couple of weeks. The P55 is out for retail sale in the USA right now.

    Just because Intel hosed Toms and every other major site that reviews hardware by keeping an NDA long after their CPUs were out for retail sale doesn't make this a "rumor"

    They could help their cause a bit by lifting the NDA. I want to see some benchmarks. Geez...it's only a week from now!
