PC online have leaked an Intel published slide showing the name of the new Core i7 processor. Many had assumed an I9 naming convention but this appears to be incorrect – the clock speed is said to be around 3 ghz and is backed up by 12mb of L3 cache as well as Turbo Boost Technology.

This CPU is targeted to users who already own a X58 board and who want the fastest possible performance with a whopping 6 cores at hand. This 6 core processor is based on the 32nm Westmere process and rumours have emerged that Intel are aiming for a March 2010 release. The price is set to be high as always and although nothing is confirmed we can expect little change, if any, from a grand.
