Intel Plans Core i7-950 Replacement in Q4...

Intel is planning to launch the Core i7-960 in Q4 as replacement for Core i7-950, as the company doesn’t think the performance difference between Core i7-950 (3.06GHz) and the upcoming Lynnfield (2.93GHz) is big enough, according to fudzilla:

Running at 3.2GHz, Core i7-960 features 4.8GT/s bus speed, 8MB of L3 cache, and its maximum turbo overclocking speed of single core is 3.46GHz. Besides, the CPU has 130W TDP.

The performance of Core i7-960 is supposed to be weaker than Core i7-965, as the 960 only has bus speed of 4.8GT/s compared with 6.4GT/s on Core i7-965, and the new Core i7-960 won’t be multiplier unclocked.
