+ - Intel Core i7-3970X Sandy Bridge-E Six-Core Hits 4.78GHz On Standard Air Cooling->

MojoKid (1002251) writes "It's no secret that Intel is readying processors based in its Haswell microarchitecture. The new chips are due to be released in the not too distant future and feature a number of noteworthy enhancements, including a much more powerful integrated graphics core. When Haswell arrives, it will supplant current Ivy Bridge-based processors, which target more mainstream market segments. For the foreseeable future, however, Intel's big dog remains Sandy Bridge-E, the monstrous six-core beast which utilizes the X79 Express chipset and socket LGA 2011. That processor is the Core i7-3970X and Intel has clearly been tuning up the manufacturing process because some chips are capable of hitting 4.78GHz and higher on standard air cooling. Benchmark-wise, even at stock speeds of 3.5GHz (4Ghz Turbo Boost), this latest speed bin of Sandy Bridge-E is appreciably faster than the previous gen chip."
