Submission + - Intel Core i7-3970X Sandy Bridge-E Six-Core Hits 4.78GHz On Standard Air Cooling (hothardware.com)

MojoKid 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.
