As expected, the company is officially raising the performance bar with the 3.33GHz Core i7 975 Extreme and the 3.06GHz Core i7 950 while slowly removing another pair. Specifically, the chips are meant to replace the 965 and 940 respectively, and should sell at similar $999 and $560 price points. Both of these chips also use a new D0 stepping that will reportedly offer lower power consumption and hence improved overclockability over the original i7s.
