QX9650 for $990


On Monday
Intel plans to finally launch many Penryn 45 nanometer cores, but only one will be a desktop CPU. The other, Harpertown 45 nanometer based chips, will be server only and Intel plans to launch a massive 22 parts next week.

The QX9650 Extreme, which we reviewed here, launches on Monday and it will cost a hefty US$990, but you can expect a bit steeper end user price.

Intel plans two new cores for Q1 2008, one called QX9775 and the second, QX9770. The Core 2 Extreme processor branded as QX9770 is 3.2GHz CPU with 12 MB of cache, FSB 1600MHz support and LGA 775. This one will work in desktop X48 boards and it will cost US$1,370 at launch.

The one with the biggest number, QX9775. is also clocked at 3.2GHz and has the same 12MB cache and FSB 1600MHz, but it uses LGA771 socket and is reserved for Skulltrail dual socket system only. One of these will cost US$1,470 and of course you need two of them for for Skulltrail platform; this will set you back a jolt at US$3,000, and that is only for two CPUs.

Both QX9775 and QX9770 will launch in Q1, while QX9650 launches on the 12th of November.
