Origin GENESIS And EON-17 To Get Intel's Core i7 990X Extreme CPU

If you had any doubts about the real-ness of the Core i7 990X Extreme Edition CPU from Intel, let them be washed aside. Maingear was quick to announce that new desktops would include the CPU, and now Origin has done the same. The company, which started only a year or so ago, is now offering Intel's baddest, most intense CPU yet in their high-end rigs. It's a six-core CPU, and Origin will overclock it for you, hitting speeds as high as 4.6GHz.

It'll be available in the GENESIS desktop and even in the EON-17 gaming laptop, with all 12 threads at the ready to rip through whatever you may need to rip through. It'll support three-channel DDR3 RAM and there's a 12MB cache for good measure, and if you have your mind set on splurging, the company should be taking orders now.
