Default Origin PC ships first gaming desktop with new Intel Core i7-990X Extreme Edition six-core processor

Intelís latest six-core processor, the Core i7-990X Extreme Edition, hasnít been officially unveiled by the chip giant yet, but gaming PC builder Origin PC has just announced the new CPUís availability in its Genesis desktop as well as its Eon-17 gaming laptop.

The i7-990X, no doubt the fastest desktop processor (as were its six-core predecessors), has a base clock speed of 3.46GHz, but Origin has overclocked the chip to 4.6GHz using liquid cooling. Expect to tack on around $1,000 to the price of the Genesis or Eon system to get your hand on Intelís latest and greatest.

Origin will no doubt be the first of many PC manufacturers that will build systems with the new six-core champion, the final one from the Gulftown family, so weíll keep you posted with other announcements as they become available.
