     Core i7-920's made of card!

    Strange the misadventure suffered by a client of US company Newegg. Vincent Waller’s smile on receiving his brand new Core i7 920 didn’t last long. On taking his processor out of the box, he realized that it contained a cardboard fan, a blank instruction sheet and a false processor. A rather disagreeable and costly joke, less uncommon that you might think.

    It seems that this false box is part of a series of 300 that were introduced into a larger lot. Many clients are reported to have received them. Though we have no official confirmation, rumours have it that the fault lies with the wholesaler of the store concerned. If this is confirmed, it will still have to be determined how the processors found their way into the stocks and who it was who sold them.

    All parties involved are based in the United States and it's very unlikely that we’ll be receiving any of this phantom produce in Europe.

     8-core Xeons for the end of the month?

    Intel Xeon At a time when the general consumer is getting ready for the arrival of the Core i7 980X, the pro market hasn’t been forgotten and should soon see the arrival of the 8-core Xeons, mentioned by Intel a year ago.

    With no less than 2.3 billion transistors, they will still be engraved at 45nm and support hyperthreading, giving a total of up to 16 logical cores. There’s a 24 MB L3 cache and 4 QPI links will allow you to connect from 4 to 8 processors to each other.

    We don’t yet have the official info on clocks and pricing of these chips, but there shouldn’t be much delay on this as launch is planned for the end of the month. By some amazing coincidence, the AMD launch of its 12-core Magny-Cours is programmed for the same period! What with the Phenom II X6s, the i7-980X, the Magny-Cours and the Nehalem-EX, it looks like being a busy period in terms of processors!
