Intel is already preparing the Core i7 line top-3970X
As indicated by sources within the industry, very soon intel processor update its Core i7 line top-3960X, with the arrival of the i7-3970X, a new exponent of the Extreme Edition that could be launched later this year.
It indicates that radical changes would not have this chip, being a minor update to 3960x to rise in frequency from 3.3GHz to 3.5GHz based, scalable to 4GHz when under load (up to 3.9GHz before). The architecture Sandy Bridge-E to 32nm is still intact, as does the presence of six physical cores with HyperThreading, the 15MB of cache and support for quad-channel RAM.
The best thing about this ad? More than the i7-3970X processor itself, the most notable perhaps is that the i7-3960X will not be discontinued immediately, but will drop in price when his older brother goes on sale.
