Intel Adds Fourth Six-Core Processor into Lineup, Brings Forward “Core i7-990X”
Intel Corp. plans to brings forward the introduction of its new top-of-the-range six-core Core i7 Extreme processor and also add fourth six-core microprocessor into the lineup of its leading-edge code-named Gulftown chips that are made using the most advanced fabrication technology to date, the 32nm HKMG process.
In the fourth quarter of the year Intel will offer replacement for its current flagship Core i7-980X processor that will offer higher performance, X-bit labs has learnt from sources with knowledge of Intel’s plans. While there are no details are known, it is more than likely that the world’s largest maker of chips will boost clock-speed of the Gulftown design up from 3.33GHz and will call the novelty “Core i7-990X”. Earlier it was reported – based on the roadmaps – that Intel will only refresh its Extreme line in Q1 2011, but apparently the company wants to update the family already in Q4 2010.
