Intel Core i5 750 is quad-core processor with clock speed of 2.66GHz and 8MB L3 cache. This Core i5 CPU is actually based on Nehalem Core i7 design but the third memory channel has been removed and QuickPath Interconnect will be replaced by Direct Media Interface.
Some insiders in the motherboard manufacturing companies said that the 2.66GHz Intel Core i5 750 can be overclocked to 3.2GHz. This Core i5 750 CPU will support DDR3 1333/1066 memory and Thermal Design Power rating of 95 Watts. The Core i5 750 processors are expected to retail for $196 per CPU in a thousand CPU tray. We hope Intel will officially announce the release of these new Core i5 processors in coming months.
