Intel Releases Core i7990X SixCore Chip

first_imgIntel is stepping back up to the plate with the release of the new Core i7-990X chipset. The newest chipset has six chips in one chip, and it’s considered to be the fastest chip yet. Built for high-end laptops, along with desktop computers, Intel will charge $999 for 1,000 units. The Core i7-990X belongs to what Intel calls the Extreme Edition chipset family. This new chipset can work with LGA1366 motherboards, as well as other motherboards. Since Intel has released the newest chipset in the Extreme Edition, Intel is slashing prices on the older models from the same family.I’m happy to see that Intel is doing well, even after the flub with Sandy Bridge. Hopefully the rest of this year will go a bit more smoothly for Intel. Via XBit Labslast_img read more
