Core i7 920 to be replaced with 930
Intel is set to replace the Core i7 920 with a new 930 model. The 2.66 GHz model is already facing EOL and gets updated. Built to be compatible with the current LGA 1366-enabled motherboards, the new CPU will be factory clocked at 2.88GHz, a slight boost over the company's current Core i7 920 model.
We are still debating a little wether or not the new CPU will make use of Intel's matured 45nm manufacturing process or the company will employ its next-generation 32nm process technology. The difference between manufacturing processes could result in a cooler-running, high-performance processor that could be paired with Intel's high-end X58 chipset.
Everything else is the same, thus 8MB L3 cache, triple channel memory support and the TDP of 130W. The new Core i7 930 will be priced at a similar 284 USD as well.
