Intel has added another model into its lineup of Core i7 LGA-1366 based processors this week; the Core i7 960. This variant comes clocked in at 3.2GHz (24 x 133) with a max Turbo Boost speed of 3.43GHz.
The Core i7 960 is touted to displace the Core i7 950 from its existing price-point of around US $562 (in 1000 unit tray quantities). As evidence of that, popular American retailer Newegg.com has listed the OEM part (chip-only) at $589.99, a mere $10 higher than the retail box of the Core i7 950 listed on the same store.
