Intel today launches its new Lynnfield processor based on its tremendously dominant Nehalem architecture. New Lynnfield processors bring with them a new socket that commands a new series of motherboards and both are very much on track to capture a huge share of the enthusiast computer hardware market.

“Coming away from all of this testing, I am most impressed by the Core i5-750 processor. The Core i5 is without a doubt going to be the new enthusiast favorite when it comes to overclocking. That said, if you are able to purchase a Core i7-920 for $200 and are willing to spend a couple of extra dollars on the motherboard (depending on the feature set), that still proves to be a great deal that obviously will not be around forever.”
