Lynnfield to Come at 3GHz Max.
Intel, the largest manufacturer of processors are releasing their new Core i5 CPUs and P55 motherboards in Q3 2009. The new Core i5s are no different from the Core i7, though instead of having a triple-channel memory controller they'll have a dual-channel memory controller, oh and a new chipset, P55 which is aimed at mainstream users. Apart from that, the new processor should come in 3 doses: 2.6, 2.8 and 3GHz respectively, while going way into the i7's price territory. We’ll see what Intel does in the future, and if the Core i5 turns out to be a success.
