Default Intel Core i7 980X EE listed at 931

The six-core behemoth, codenamed Gulftown, based on the 32nm Westmere architecture and it is clocked at 3.33GHz. Thanks to Turbo overclocking 980X can run at 3.6GHz and it supports Hyperthreading. There are a few downsides. The price isn't all that great, but in this market segment that's not a very big deal. The triple channel memory controller officially supports 1066MHz memory, although we're confident it will be able to cope with somewhat higher clocks. With a 140W TDP is seems there is not much room for overclocking, but with six cores ar 3.33GHz, there really isn't much need for overclocking, either.
