Default Intel preps "cheaper" hexa-core i7

Intel readies up cheaper Core i7 six-core processor :: TweakTown

"As we know, AMD's new hexa-core processors in the form of the Phenom II X6 series are set to make their debut early next week and will give users the ability to get six-core grunt out of their desktop systems without the massive cost that comes with doing it Intel style in its only hexa-core powered Core i7-980X processor.

However, Intel will make the gap a little smaller with a cheaper six-core i7 processor soon after, though still not as cheap as some would have hoped.

This processor will be dubbed the Core i7-970 and from what we're hearing a the minute it will still cost a hefty $900+ for ownership, only slightly less than their flagship model. The processor runs at 3.2GHz with 12MB of L3 cache and of course sports Hyperthreading for 12 logical cores."

If they came out with a Hexa-Core i7 950 @ 2.66GHz or 2.8GHz in the $500 range I'd be interested

I think that chip was supposed to be a Xeon.
