Intel to release inexpensive LGA 2011 chip

Despite the upcoming arrival of new high-end Core i7-4800/4900 Ivy Bridge processors Intel will soon release a cheaper six-core Sandy Bridge processor for the current LGA 2011 platform.

Right now the US chip giant has four LGA 2011 Sandy Bridge processors – three six-core i7-3900 processors and a cheaper quad-core i7-3820 chip. Soon enough a new six-core processor will join the pack and this will be the Core i7-3910K central processing unit. Not much is known about it except that it will run at the relatively low clock speed of 3.0 GHz and will most likely have Hyper-Threading enabled with it.

The upcoming Core i7-3910K processor will most likely be aimed at system makers. The pricing of the CPU is unknown.
