There are more rumors about the availability of the Intel Core i7-2700K and its price. It is expected to debut next month for US$331.Hence, its arrival may not entail a price reduction for the i7-2600K or any of the Sandy Bridge CPUs. Just two days ago, we reported the leaked details of the processor on BIOSTAR's CPU support webpage.
The Core i7-2700K will have a base clock of 3.5GHz, up 100MHz from the 2600K, but will be otherwise identical to its predecessor. That means it would also sport four cores, Hyper-Threading support, 8MB L3 cache, and a 95W TDP.
