In a recent sighting of more Gigabyte X58-DS4 pictures, Hardspell posted a CPU-Z screenshot of the board running the 2.93GHz "Bloomfield" chip, which the program identifies as "Intel Core i7 940." Could this in fact be true? I'm still confused with the heirarchy and "identifiers" of the upcoming Nehalem lineup..
On a second note, Wiki says otherwise - that the 2.93GHz "Bloomfield" will be dubbed "Core i7 900"
original Wiki source (translated):
Hardware-Infos.com - Intel Core i7 Processors from mid-October (August 11, 2008)
Oh WOW, our original source on the Core i7 940 (Hardware-Infos.com) apparently edited their "Core i7 Processors in mid-October" article (under the same original posting date - August 11, 2008....) to rename the "Core i7 940" back to just "Core i7 900"
more accurate translation:
"Behind the scenes, the Core i7 900 Extreme edition traded names with the 2.93GHz model, which will be known as Core i7 900."
(this still doesn't point to an absolute name for the "Extreme Edition." Perhaps it will share the Core i7 900 name but with an "Extreme Edition" identifier?)
And now if you point your browsers to the Core i7 Wikipedia article, you'll find that Source  (the source for all the Core i7 processor models) in fact cites the same Hardware-Infos link. Conspiracy? I think more like NDA
looks like Intel's being doing some reediting work on me behind the scenes. They don't want me to distribute this info...oh well, I'm going to say it:
THE CORE i7 2.93GHZ MODEL WILL BE KNOWN AS CORE i7 940!
