The new socket LGA2011 flagship


According to a report over at Donanimhaber.com, Intel's new Core i7-3970X flagship "extreme" CPU is scheduled to appear in Q4 2012.

The Core i7-3970X is going to replace the current Core i7-3960X and it is basically just a minor speed bump. According to available details, it could end up working at 3.5GHz base and 4.0GHz Turbo clock. Of course, it will still be based on 32nm Sandy Bridge-E architecture and feature 6 cores with HyperThreading support, have 15MB of L3 cache and come with unlocked multiplier since it is a part of "Extreme Edition" lineup.

The Core i7-3970X should also pack a same quad-channel DDR3 memory controller with support for up to DDR3-1600 memory and have a 130W TDP, same as on the Core i7-3960X.

The good side of the story is that it should replace the Core i7-3960X EE CPU that should probably experience a slight drop in price before it phases out of the market.
