Intel denies Core i7 920 will be discontinued and Lynnfield won't be called Core i5
 
Having breakfast while ogling over the prohibitively expensive and ludicrously fast Core i7 975 this morning, we nailed down some details about the supposed demise of Intel's Core i7 920 and future naming of its Lynnfield CPUs.

First, the Core i7 920. Despite being told quite the opposite just last week, Intel vehemently reaffirmed the i7 920 will still exist for the foreseeable future. However, there was absolutely no commitment to a timescale.

Secondly, Intel said its Lynnfield processors would NOT be branded Core i5 like the rumours have suggested, but the spokesperson stopped short of what the name would be.

Our sources also hinted that Lynnfield will bear the same Core i7 branding as Bloomfield. That fits with what Intel told us on Tuesday. The Core i5 name may not be a complete fabrication, though: our sources referred to Clarkdale—Intel's 32nm dual-core CPU with integrated graphics—by that name.
