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.
Gigabyte all the way.
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"
If the benchies are good enough, maybe i´ll finally update my Core2Duo E6400...
