2.88GHz for around €250
In addition to the yesterday's listing of six-core, Core i7 980 Extreme Edition, EU stores have started to list the new Core i7 930 as well. We already wrote about this Nehalem-based 45nm quad-core a couple of times, and now it has finally appeared in EU retail/e-tail.
As noted, the new Core i7 930 is a socket LGA 1366 Nehalem-based 45nm quad-core that works at 2.88GHz, has QPI speed of 4.8GT/s and packs 8MB of L3 cache. This CPU is going to replace the Core i7 920, and only features a slight clock speed bump. It officially supports triple channel DDR3-1066 memory and Turbo Boost gets it to 3.06GHz.
It has been listed in couple of established EU retail/e-tail shops and some of them even have it in stock. The price starts at €254.82 and you can find it here.
