i7-990x? 3.46Ghz TDP 135W [Bittech]
 
Just a little thing I found on the BIT-TECH site...


ECS confirms Core i7-990X | bit-tech.net

No big deal, I don't thing a lot of people will jump on this, especially in those SB times, but it's (IMHO) a "preview" of things to come with socket 2011 I guess.

I'll "speculate" that one of the first S2011 CPUs could be a 3.6Ghz Hexacore (non-extreme edition)...that would be the next step

interesting. But I would have liked to see cheaper 6 cores CPU for the X58, not Extreme Cpus.

A new Extreme Edition usually triggers downward price pressure on the rest of the product stack.

Well,

So almighty Linus is expecting the 970's price to come down!

Linus! Please make a video review of 2600K!!!!!!!!!

With the RE pricing deal, about 250 US for an i7 970, there is already pressure on the 970 pricing.

I know, it wont make a direct impact on retail, but if you do look around, the 970 price has plummetted in re-sale value. So if the retailer/intel wants to get their inventory out, they had to drop pricing.

We know that there are only two desktop processors planned for S2011 currently - a hex and an octo. The rest are all Xeon processors (for now at least). So the only thing left to speculate on is the frequency of the desktop parts.

The octocore 4P part looks very interesting (SB-EX). A million PPD in a single box may be possible as early as Q4 this year.

I did not know that. Nice. Semi affordable Octocore in Q42011

When I see the 990X available watch for a 980X for sale...likely around $600 ;)

Of course that depends on the price drop on the 970 right?

I think he was reffering to his CPU.... Dozer performance will also have something to say about the pricing.
