Before launching its LGA 2011 platform built around the X79 Express chipset at the end of the year, Intel looks set to launch a final LGA 1366 Gulftown type processor. The Core i7-995X will have six cores engraved at 32nm and will be clocked at 3.60 GHz by default (3.86 GHz in Turbo), against 3.46 GHz for the current Core i7-990X.
In terms of pricing, don’t hold your breath for anything under $999, while the TDP should still be 130 watts. Given that the Core i7-980X and 990X have an unlocked multiplier and get up to this clock without too much difficulty, the real value of this final LGA1366 CPU will of course be very limited.
