According to the current Intel roadmap it doesn’t look that Intel plans to release anything faster than 3.2GHz for the remainder of the year. The next CPU after QX9770 is Bloomfield, a version of a Nehalem marchitecture with quad core and eight threads scheduled for Q4 2008 introduction.
This means that 3.2 GHZ, FSB 1600 Yorkfield might be the fastest Intel for almost three quarters. We are sure that with its 45 nanometre process Intel should be able to get a bit higher, as Eliot managed to overclock this marchitecture with massive air cooling all the way up to 4.3GHz. At the same time we are sure that he went over the TDP top.
Fastest quad-core from Intel to be clocked at 3.2GHz?
