More news on Intels Core i7 today, as the release date, prices and clock-speeds have leaked.
Core i7 processors (Bloomfield) socket LGA 1366 and the X58 chipset should be released at 3 November for hardware manufacturers and should be available to the consumer 4 weeks later. It is expected that at first the three quad-core Nehalem based CPU's will be released at
In the second quarter 2009 Bloomfield processors will step over the 3.2 GHz frequency, and in the third quarter will appear the more accessible processors LGA 1160.
Processors released will be:
Core i7 920 2,66GHz
Core i7 940 2,93 GHz
Core i7 965 3,2 GHz
Prices, I've also got these for you .. the Core i7 920 will cost 284 USD, the Core i7 940 562 USD and the Core i7 965 which is an Extreme edition BTW, will cost 999 USD. These are prices per 1000 sold processors.
Rumor is that at the end of September a few guys will already receive samples to test .. yet are prohibited to overclock. Intel is supposedly only to allow the expensive processors to be overclocked. Processors under 400 USD will get a bus lock, prohibiting overclocking.
