Intel doesn't have plans to introduce anything faster than the six-core Core i7 980X clocked 3.33GHz, at least not in 2010. This is the current plan that would only change if Intel feels challenged by AMD.
Fud is smoking pole as usual, Sandy bridge will have models with as many as 8 cores ( 16 threads ), that's what I'm waiting for. New socket, likely DDR4, possibly PCI-E 3.0, 2011 is going to be big the 6000 series will come out swinging for ATI, and 28nm will be here. :D :D :D
of a new computer!!!
