Hardware Roundup: Intel Core i7-975 Processor Edition
The annual Computex show in Taipei always brings forth new product announcements from manufacturers. Yesterday, we saw two new processors from AMD - the Phenom II X2 550 and Athlon II X2 250 and today it is Intel's turn with the release of a pair of it's own new CPUs. There's nothing new architecture wise as Intel seems to be using Computex as a reason to announce a new flagship model with the Core i7 Extreme Edition processor which now sits at the top of the heap with its 3.33GHz clock speed. While the emphasis from Intel seems to be on the i7- 975, Intel also released the Core i7-950, a 3.06GHz mainstream CPU that gets a slight speed increase over the Core i7 940.
