Details on Intel's upcoming kinda flagship processor, the Core i7-4930K has popped up on e-tailer website BottomLine Telecommunications. Intel's Core i7-4930K is based on Intel's Ivy Bridge-E platform, so it's kinda late.

We already have the Haswell-based Core range of processors, but Intel has no competition in the super high-end range, so there's no push and shove from behind them to release a new processor. Now, let's talk specs! We can see that the Core i7-4930K is a six-core part, so we have 12 threads in total at 3.4GHz each.

There's 12MB of L3 cache, which should impress most, and it arrives in the now older LGA 2011 socket which will enjoy those high-end X79-based motherboards. These CPUs will have a place for some, but not for most.
