    Default Intel to Release Core i7 990X !

    Intel to Release Core i7 990X Extreme Edition Six-Core Processor in Q4 2010

    Intel is working on a newer high-end processor SKU based on its 32 nm "Gulftown" six-core design, the Core i7 990X Extreme Edition. It is reportedly slated for Q4 2010. As with most other Extreme Edition SKUs, the 990X will feature a higher default BClk multipler, and a higher resulting clock speed. Like the Core i7 980X Extreme Edition, it will feature an unlocked BClk multipler to help with overclocking. Gulftown features six cores on a monolithic die, with a triple-channel DDR3 IMC, and 12 MB of L3 cache. The launch of 990X is said to have been pulled forward by a quarter, as it was earlier reported to launch in Q1 2011.

    The other six-core processor that is said to release before the 990X is the Core i7 970, a standard (non-XE, limited BClk multiplier) SKU that will be positioned in the upper-Performance segment, above current Core i7 quad-core SKUs. The Core i7 970 is slated for Q3 2010.

    I'm guessing at the bios that supports the 980x,but its best to update to the latest bios before you take out/sell your 930/920 chip,you might have a problem if you buy a mb with an older bios on it that doesn't support a 6core,then you would need a 920 or 930 cpu to flash to the latest bios with,then install the 6core chip

    According to website to stassio above, F8K is the one. I have flashed to this BIOS now. Awaiting chips arrival by UPS tomorrow. So far stable with my 920 running at 2.8.
