If you're waiting patiently for Intel's Core i7 processors - codename Nehalem - you'll be appreciative of the widespread reports indicating a November 2008 launch.

Intel itself is yet to confirm any specific launch-date plans, but details on its Core i7 model numbers and thousand-unit pricing have slipped online. Should the leaks be accurate, here's what we'll be treated to later this year when the first three chips - codename Bloomfield - arrive on the scene:

Model number Intel Core i7 920
(mainstream)
Intel Core i7 940
(performance)
Intel Core i7 965
(extreme)
Clock 2.66GHz 2.93GHz 3.20GHz
Cores 4 4 4
Threads 8 8 8
Process 45nm 45nm 45nm
Socket LGA1366 LGA1366 LGA1366
TDP 130W 130W 130W
L2 cache 256KB per core 256KB per core 256KB per core
L3 cache 8MB shared 8MB shared 8MB shared
Price (in thousand unit quantities) $284 $562 $999

Intel is yet to officially confirm model numbers, specifications and pricing, and the above should be taken with a pinch of salt.

There are going to be some good overclocks on the cheaper models, I reckon.
Shouldn't unconfirmed leaks be ‘beans’ rather than news?

Wern't there reports saying overclocking the i7s is going to be a bitch?
Heavy overclockers should be ok as they'll be used to fiddling with everything, but casual overclockers like me are going to be stumped.
920, 940 and 965 were all used as model numbers for Presler Pentium D's.

With there now being an i7 9-series I'm not quite sure what naming scheme Intel is going for, having expected a Xeon-esque naming scheme.
