Intel releases two new Core i7 CPU versions for speed freaks, which will be officially announced next week at the Computex 2010. Intel already supplied tech sites with the new Core i7-875K and Core i5-655K CPUs for testing.
The new Intel Core i7-875K and Core i5-655K are similar to the Core i7-870 and i5-650, but unlocked for overclockers.

Hothardware says about the new K-series Core i7 CPUs: " The unlocked Core i5-655K will command a $40 price premium over the locked i5-650, which is a bit steep in our opinion, but at under $220 it is still a relatively affordable processor and offers much more flexibility while overclocking than the standard i5-650. The Core i7-875K, despite having an obviously higher price, is priced to move. You're reading the chart correctly--the Core i7-875K will sell for $342, which makes it almost $240 cheaper than the locked Core i7 870."
