Intel Core i7 3970X Arriving In Q4 2012

Last year intel announced the Sandy Bridge-E enthusiast platform alongside with the X79 chipset and LGA 2011. To date there is only 3 Sandy Bridge-E Core i7 processors. The highest end Core i7 which is the i7 3960X cost $999 and for that price you only have 6 cores which has a turbo freq of up to 3.9GHz. However the 3960X is ready to be replaced with the i7 3970X which will be arriving in Q4 2012 based on a DonanimHaber report. This new flagship processor is expected to ship with a clock speed of 3.50GHz and a turbo of 4.00GHz. That is a 100Mhz increase in turbo clock speed. Other specifications are similar to the 3960X and it is most likely be the same price as the current i7 3960X.
