Intel Core i7-960: New socket 1366 CPU expected in fourth quarter
If or when the Core i7 series will be phased out can only be guessed at the moment, but Intel apparently wants to introduce a Core i7-960 in the fourth quarter of 2009.
According to the latest reports Intel is planning to introduce a Core i7-960 processor. The CPU for the socket 1366 will be running at a default clock speed of 3.2 GHz and thus would have the same frequency as the Core i7-965 XE (which is supposed to phase out), but a fixed multiplier. More specifications of the Core i7-960 are a 130W TDP, 8 MiByte L3 cache and an integrated DDR3 interface.
It is expected that the Core i7-960 will change hands for 562 USD. Thus the new processor would replace the Core i7-950 says tcmagazine.com. Apparently Intel has a tendency to update the product array farther fast at the moment.
