Days after AMD released its long awaited Bulldozer chip to disappointing results, Intel has responded with the unveiling of its new Core i7 2700k processor – an expansion of the Sandy Bridge architecture.
Intel’s new quad-core chip clocks in at 3.5GHz, has a 8MB of L3 cache and a 95W TDP. This speed places it a mere 100Mhz ahead of the Core i7-2600k. Similar to the Core i7 2600k, the Core i7 2700k has an unlocked clock multiplier to enable overclocking.
The Core i7 2700k has an MSRP of $332.
