Intel may release six-core processor Core i7-3970X EE

The top board platform Intel LGA2011 is not yet very demanded among customers, mainly due to the high prices of components — motherboard with chipset X79 and processors Intel Sandy Bridge-E. However, it should be remembered that the models LGA1366 also initially were desirable for only enthusiasts with a tight purse, and only in 2010, with cheaper motherboards and the release of new, more powerful processors, Core i7, (Bloomfield / Westmere) sales statistics of LGA1366 components rose considerably.

It is possible that consumer interest in the LGA2011 platform will also grow this and especially next year. Part of this will contribute to six-core Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition which is expected to be released. Core i7-3970X EE has a clock speed of 3.4 or 3.5 GHz stock, which is in turbo mode increases up to 4.0 GHz. Other features of the model coincide with those of the 3960X:

— Process technology: 32 nm Sandy Bridge-E architecture;

— The number of cores / streams: …

Point of View strengthens GeForce GTX 680 UltraCharged 4GB of memory

Dutch manufacturer of discrete graphics Point of View considered as a good idea to equip one of the top-end versions GeForce GTX 680 with the prefix UltraCharged with four gigabytes of memory. This graphic card can be a good alternative to existing POV / TGT GTX 680 UltraCharged with 2GB buffer.

The frequencies remained the same: 1111 MHz for the graphics core (1176 MHz in turbo mode) and 6008 MHz for the 4 GB of memory GDDR5. Under three-slot cooling system, there is GK104 chip in the composition of 1536 shaders and 256-bit memory bus. Point of View marketers emphasize that the graphics processor for the graphics cards GTX 680 UltraCharged …
