Intel Releases Core i7-2700K Processor
Intel has updated its processor price list once again, this time to add the already leaked Core i7-2700K and to reflect the lowered price tag of the Core i3-2120 and of the Pentium G850 and G630.
The i7-2700K is now the performance king on the LGA-1155 platform (until the release of the Ivy Bridge processors), replacing the i7-2600K. The i7-2700K is clocked at 3.5 GHz (100 MHz higher than the 2600K), has four cores (8 threads), 8MB of L3 cache, a TDP of 95W, and integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics. The release costs is $332, which $15 more than the i7-2600K (based on 1,000 units).
Intel has adjusted the prices of the Core i3-2120, Pentium G850 and G630 by roughly 15% across the board.
