Default Intel Core i5 at 2.93GHz direct competition to Core i7 950

Lynnfield quad-core at 2.93GHz will be a direct competitor to the soon to launch Core i7 950. This gives us a strong hint that Core i5 brand might not materialize, at least not for this category, and that Lynnfield might end up branded as Core i7 xx0, let's say 8x0 series. Since Intel is not telling this to most of its partners, we can only speculate the brand, but we don’t know it.

Lynnfield 2.93GHz is getting positioned side by side with the 3.06GHz Core i5 950 CPU and its not a secret that Core i7 950 should end up faster, but probably just slightly. This gives us an idea that top speed Lynnfield should be selling for €400+ and this is not really a bargain. emid=35
