It really has been some time since we have seen really nay fast and new Sandy Bridge CPUs, as most of newer models that have been up for sale have been offerings of value and budget for the public. According to reliable reports now, the company Intel is building a brand new CPU, which is definitely going to be the upcoming 2700K Core i7 by Intel. This has its root in the convention of naming which is used for the company’s MDDS (Material Declaration Data Sheets). The company has added 2 entries to these sheets, BXC80623I72700K and the BX80623I72700K. The 2700K typed at the very end of the codes denotes the CPU model. The new upcoming CPU is going to be from the Sandy Bridge family and will have their destiny to be very much based on the LGS1155-socket system.
Reliable sources believe that the new upcoming CPU is going to run on 4 cores with the HT (hyper-threading) technology enabled. There will be a 1 megabyte of L2 cache and an 8 megabyte of the L3 cache all in all. The CPU’s TDP is most likely to be very similar to that of 2600K, running at 95W. The speeds of the core are also higher than previously. The new 2700K Core i7 might very well hit the markets before this year ending or at the very latest at Q1 of the year 2012. Intel might very well choose to be patient and wait for their rival AMD to put out their Bulldozer processors in the market, before finally releasing their new product to markets globally.
The CPU operates on the 1155 Socket (the H2 Socket) and measures at 3.75 cm x 3.75 cm (or 1.48-inches x 1.48-inches). Its die size is at 216 mm-squared and the FPU (Floating Point Unit) is integrated. It has a 64 bit data width. It comes with a physical memory in Gigabytes of 32. More technical features include an instruction set (MMX), SSE 1, 2 and 3 and with a Supplemental SSE3, instructions of AES, Advanced Vector Extensions and the Turbo Boost technology (version 2.0).
