The company has said to a special few that the new CPU should fit the 130W TDP envelope and that it will work on existing LGA1366 infrastructure. You won't need a new chipset, as it will work with X58.


The memory supported is DDR3, and officially Intel will only support the miserable 1066MHz memory and not even 1333MHz memory will be supported but we are quite sure that faster memory will work.
