Leaks on Intel website


First reports on Intel's upcoming Core i7-3970X Extreme processor showed up back in July and the specs were later confirmed in leaked roadmap slides. Now the processor has been spotted at Intel's official website.

The info showed up in the CPU support list for the DX79SI motherboard and although it has been now removed, CPU-World.com managed to grab a neat screenshot confirming all the specifications.

In case you missed it, the Core i7-3970X is a six-core Extreme Edition socket 2011 CPU that ticks at 3.5GHz, just a 200MHz higher than current Core i7-3960X flagship CPU. It comes with 15MB of L3 cache, has 4GHz maximum Tubro Boost and a 150W TDP.

Although the precise price or the launch date have not been revealed, the fact that it showed up at Intel's official website suggest that the launch date is quite near.

You can check out the screenshot here.
