Intel prepping only three six-core Gulftown chips

Posted on Wednesday, February 10 2010 @ 19:25:54 CET by

X-bit Labs heard Intel has planned only three six-core "Gulftown" processors, these chips will all be available within the next twelve months and will fit a 130W TDP.
Intel’s plans to release Core i7-980X Extreme Edition microprocessor with six processing engines functioning at 3.33GHz for top-of-the-range desktop systems at $999 or higher price-point in the first quarter in an attempt to offer a truly unbeatable solution in the desktop space. In Q3 2010 the world’s largest maker of microprocessor plans to release another six-core Core i7-970 central processing unit that will run at 3.20GHz clock-speed and will cost lower compared to the older brother, sources familiar with Intel’s roadmap told X-bit labs. In addition, Intel mulls launching another six-core Core i7 Extreme chip in Q1 2011 to refresh the lineup and present the fastest solution for the LGA1366 platform. At present nothing exact is known about this processor, but it is highly likely that it will simply have frequency higher than 3.33GHz.
