Purported Intel Core i7 details leak out, 920, 940 and 965 models en route? September 18th, 2008 by Filed under: Desktops While some companies are
already out there promising Core i7-based gear, we haven’t yet heard many official specifics about the actual processors that’ll be at the heart
of them (at least not since their earlier Nehelem days). That’s now changed in a pretty big way, however, with some supposedly authentic leaked
materials revealing the complete spec list and some pricing details. ....with quad-core, 45nm processors, and each boast the same 8MB of shared L3
cache, 256kb of L2 cache per core, and TDP rating of 130W. No word on individual unit pricing just yet, but it looks like the Core i7 920 will run
$284 in quantities of 1,000, with Core i7 940 upping things considerably to $562, and the “extreme” Core i7 965 demanding a hefty $999.
Now what will spring bring? These quad- cores should be fast. One of these and a 64 bit Vista may compare with running Vista in MAC. Who knows...I
can hardly wait for crystal storage no moving parts and infinite archiving. That would be the ultimate, gaming will evolve to the 5th dimention when
it comes together....Oh yeah!
