Intel's forthcoming Core i7 lineup of codenamed Nehalem processors are not due to go on sale till the second part of next month.

However, that didn't stop us getting our hands on an engineering sample Core i7 920 processor clocked at 2.66GHz (133MHz x 20) from a secret bunker hidden well underground... :)

Check it out below - we compared it in size to an old dual-core Celeron Socket 775 processor.

That is about all we can say or Intel will really kill us more than they might already.
