Six-Core Nehalem Processors Might Arrive This Year

According to bit-tech, , Intel is planning to release a six-core Nehalem processor sometime this year.

Rumor also has it that most board manufacturers have already added support, so those of you with Nehalem rigs can probably upgrade to the new chip with a BIOS update. Saving a little money is definitely a good thing in this situation, because if and when a six-core Nehalem is released, expect prices to be in excess of $1000. [bit-tech via Trusted Reviews]
