Intel plans to release its new Core i7 2700K Processor in Q4 2011 which will be the company's latest Flagship chip in its Sandy Bridge (LGA-1155) Lineup. While the chip is yet to be released, A member over at Coolaler forums has already acquired an engineering sample of the CPU and overclocked it to 5Ghz.

The Core i7 2700K is a Quad Core model featuring 8 Threads, 3.5Ghz Stock and 3.9Ghz Turbo Boost 2.0 Frequency, 8Mb L3 Cache and 95W TDP. Although the chip only features a 100mhz advantage over i7 2600K but overclocking is relatively better because the best Sandy Bridge Cores are being Cherry Picked by Intel itself.
