FUD Zilla reports Intel is about to launch several new processors:
As for the bigger news, there will be three first upcoming LGA 1156 Lynnfield Core i7 and Core i5 desktop SKUs which are yet to be publicly announced by Intel. Sources at PC Watch in Japan state that they will be Core i7 870 2.93GHz, Core i7 860 2.80GHz, and Core i5 750 2.66GHz. All three models operate at a 95w TDP while Core i7 870 and 860 are quad-core 8-thread chips while Core i5 750 is a quad-core 4-thread chip respectively. As expected, the Core i5 version of Lynnfield does not support Simultaneous MultiThreading, and therefore it’s just a 4-thread CPU.
Back in January, we wrote that Intel was also planning to introduce low-power 65w TDP models of the Core i5 Lynnfield processors. This is still true, however, Intel has changed the TDP spec to 82w and plans to make low-power Core i7 chips as well. The first two models will launch in Q1 2010 and will be known as Core i7 860S 2.53GHz and Core i7 750S 2.4GHz.
