Intel Core i7-920: D0 stepping on the market
Due to the latest overclocking achievements of the Core i7-920 in which the D0 stepping could be overclocked to up to 4,641 MHz (default is 2,660 MHz) the introduction of the D0 stepping should attract attention.
But in the meantime greater amounts of Core i7-920 with spec code SLBEJ have been surfaced which represent the new stepping. According to Changelog the core has not been changed so that the differences should keep within a limit - if the overclocking achievements of the first D0 stepping Core i7-920s only were a lucky strike has to be refuted during the next weeks.
The chips produced with the new stepping will replace the old stocks bit by bit. However, the "old” version will be sold first. Akiba reported about the D0 stepping.
