Intel's Core i7 2700K processor is new in town and boy does she get around. We mean that in a good way, and it's totally with the blessing of her folks from Santa Clara who told her, "Hey, you're unlocked, go have a good time." The 2700K took those words to heart and, among other places, found herself hanging around Maingear where she's running laps at 5GHz and beyond.
It never takes long for system builders to capitalize on newly announced components, so it should come as little surprise that boutique system builder Origin PC is already pimping Intel Core i7 2700k-based systems overclocked beyond 5GHz. The chip just showed up today in an official capacity when Intel released an updated processor price list, and it's now being offered as an option in Origin PC's entire line of custom desktops.
Intel has gone and updated its processor price list, and in doing so, the Santa Clara chip maker officially unveiled its Core i7 2700K processor. We've known about this CPU for some time now, but as a refresher, this is a quad-core part clocked at 3.5GHz with 8MB of L3 cache and a 95W TDP. By comparison, the Core i7 2600K is clocked at 3.4GHz, but otherwise is the same chip.
