InteL revealed today two new Extreme edition processors for enthusiast users based on the Gulftown leaked at a Chinese media on a roadmap slide, the Core i7 990X with 6-core packed inside .

The new Extreme processor can be ether overcklocked or not when its an unlocked edition ,using the 2011-pin LGA Socket and Intel X79 Express chipset. 


Specifications are 15 MB of L3 cache, among several other features enabled. We're betting these processors will cost around US $1000.
The first batch will be clocked at 3.30 GHz (+ Turbo). 

The second class of "unlocked" chips are those which make overclocking more accessible at lower price points probably branded with the "K" brand identifier extension (eg: 2600K). 

These 6-core chips will feature unlocked multipliers, while having 12 MB of cache enabled. The first of these chips will be clocked at 3.20 GHz.
Anyways, have a peek at the leaked slide, that's some good info ...
