The Extreme Edition processors from Intel always have been and always will be overpriced irrelevancies. What else can you say about a series that typically cost upwards of £800? The problem isn't just pricing, either. In outright performance terms,...

We're uncertain as to why Intel has released the Core i5-655K and Core i7-875K. Its chips are already incredibly overclockable and unlocking the multiplier does little to change this, while also potentially eroding its Extreme Edition brand.By using...
