Intel readies Core i7-880 3.06GHz
Reportedly, the Core i7-880 will arrive in the second quarter of this year with a 3.06GHz clock speed and a top per-core speed of 3.73GHz, thanks to Turbo Boost. That'll be up slightly from the 2.93GHz i7-870, whose individual cores top out at 3.6GHz. Other features should stay identical between the two chips, including Hyper-Threading support, a 95W thermal envelope, DDR3-1333 memory support, and presumably 8MB of L3 cache.
The i7-880 and its predecessor will "coexist," so perhaps we'll see both CPUs selling around the $562 mark next quarter, with no changes to the lower echelons of the Core i7 series. In a perfect world, the arrival of a faster model would push slower ones down the price ladder. With essentially no competition from AMD above $200, however, Intel may have little incentive to do that.
