  • Summary: In a few days Intel is going to expand their overclocking-friendly product line and to offer two new LGA1156 processors with unlocked clock frequency multipliers.

Intel Core i5-655K & Core i7-875K Unlocked Processors Review

  • Conclusion: Frankly, we can definitely thank AMD for the existence of the Core i7-875K. In our eyes, this is Intel's surprising counter to the Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition . They could have just dropped the price of the i7-870 to $350 and lured away some potential 1090T buyers, but instead they went straight for the enthusiast market and offered the Holy Grail that is freely selectable CPU multipliers. This is a highly unusual, but exciting move on Intel's part.
