Intel Ships 3.2GHz Hexacore i7-970 Desktop CPU

Intel’s 32nm Gulftown architecture has produced its latest gem: the 3.2GHz hexacore i7-970 processor that’ll set you back $US900. In addition to being super speedy – especially with TurboBoost, which lets you rev up to 3.46GHz – you get 12MB of on-chip cache and a triple-channel DDR3 memory controller. Fun times, and something I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see end up in the Mac Pro someday. [NewEgg Electronista]
