The Intel Core i7 875K is based on Intel's 45nm Lynnfield core. It works at 2.93GHz, can process eight simultaneous threads with Hyper-Threading, features 8MB of L3 cache and has a 95W TDP.
Unlocked multiplier for simplified overclocking.
Costs a lot less than similar.
Compatible with existing LGA 1156 PCs.
Aside from the multiplier, no other change in features from the Core i7-870.Intel Core i5-655K.
Functionally identical to Core i5-650.
System builders may not want to pay $40 more for overclocking privileges with only a dual-core chip.
Only a very tiny niche can see value in this processor.
