Intel Core i7 940 and 965 EE to get replaced in Q2 2009

Posted on Monday, February 09 2009 @ 19:18:54 CET by

FUD Zilla heard from sources at Taiwanese motherboard makers that Intel plans to replace the Core i7 940 and 965 Extreme Edition with the Core i7 950 and 975 Extreme Edition in the second quarter. The new Core i7 chips will be available at the same price points, but will offer higher clockspeeds and a new stepping revision.
The recently announced Core i7 950 will run at 3.06GHz, roughly 130MHz faster than its 940 predecessor, and will be priced again at $562 in quantities of 1000. Likewise, the Core i7 Extreme 975 will run at 3.33GHz, roughly 133MHz faster than its 965 Extreme predecessor, and will be priced again at $999 in quantities of 1000.

As usual with Intel's Extreme Edition processors, the 975 will have an unlocked multiplier to "justify" the price premium. Additionally, both CPUs will carry Intel's new D0 stepping, which promises better overclocking potential as shown by Fugger and Mikeguava from XtremeSystems in their 3DMark 05 world record set on the 975 Extreme.
