Maingear Reveals Desktops With Intel's Core i7 990X Extreme CPU

New CPUs usually mean a couple of things. For one, it means that your current CPU just got a little older, but the other thing is this: it means more options from those looking to buy a new PC now. Maingear is a pre-fab PC maker that seems to always be on the ball when it comes to updating their lineup after Intel and AMD introduce new chips. This week, the company announced that Intel's new Core i7 990X Extreme Edition processor would be Intel's latest chip to ship in their high-end gaming rigs, confirming that Intel really has pushed the limits again when it comes to the CPU.

It's a 3.46GHz hyper-threaded CPU, able to run 12 threads in parallel and available in the SHIFT PC. Maingear will overclock it to 4.5GHz on select systems, and pair it with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 580 (3-way SLI is supported) and gobs of memory. The new CPU will be available in the SHIFT, F131, VYBE and X-CUBE, and you can get your order going now if you have the needed cash.
