Intel prepping two unlocked LGA1156 processors?

Posted on Monday, March 22 2010 @ 20:34:32 CET by

TechPowerUp reports Intel seems to be working on two LGA1156 processors with an unlocked multiplier; the quad-core Core i7 875K and dual-core Core i5 655K. It seems these are the budget Extreme Edition processors Intel hinted at a couple of weeks ago, but instead of the "EE" name they'll carry a "K" suffix.
The i7 875K is based on the Lynnfield core, operates at around 3 GHz (could be 3.06 GHz), has four cores, eight logical CPUs with HyperThreading enabled, 256 KB of L2 cache per core with 8 MB shared L3 cache, on-die dual-channel DDR3 memory controller and PCI-Express 2.0 root complex, and the unlocked BClk multipler. The i5 655K is a dual-core part based on the Clarkdale core, operates at 3.20 GHz, has four logical CPUs with HyperThreading enabled, 256 KB L2 cache per core with shared 4 MB L3 cache, and on-chip northbridge. The i7 875K has a TDP of 95W, while the i5 655K has a TDP of 73W. Intel plans to release these chips around the time of Computex 2010 targeting summer sales. It remains to be seen which markets Intel targets with these new chip, whether it will be a worldwide product at all.
