TechARP claims Intel may release the Core i7 processor and X58 chipset as soon as next week, or the week after. However, the site also talked to a three other sources and those were skeptical about the mid-October launch date..
Earlier today, we were informed by a source from a major motherboard manufacturer that the Intel Core i7 and the X58 Express are both ready for launch. In fact, this source was informed last month by both their HQ and an Intel representative to prepare for a launch in the middle of October. If what our source says is correct, then the Intel Core i7 and X58 Express could be out as early as NEXT WEEK or the week after at the latest!
However, this early launch date does sound a little suspect since we had previously expected it to be launched around Week 46 (November 10-16). But if this latest rumour is true, then Intel would be springing a really big surprise on everyone. So we thought we should dig elsewhere and see if we can verify this..
