Intel releasing a second, cheaper unlocked "K" CPU in June?

Addressing mainstream consumers

A couple days ago we reported on a story from Fudzilla that suggests Intel may be planning an unlocked processor for launch at Computex Taipei 2010 which is a big computer show held annually early June in Taiwan.

News has filtered out that Intel may in fact be releasing a second and cheaper unlocked processor at the tradeshow at the same time. The one we spoke about earlier this week was a high-end model, the Core i7 875K.

 

Apparently the next part is the Core i5 655K for Socket 1156 motherboards. The 3.2GHz dual-core processor is said to come with a TDP of 73 watts and naturally cost more than the standard locked Core i5 650, which will set you back around $195. So, a 10% price premium (just guessing!), would put it at around $215 USD.
