MojoKid writes "Intel recently launched a speed bump of their flagship Extreme Edition
Core i7 processor,
known as the Core i7-990X. Its multiplier is unlocked and it's clocked at 3.45GHz stock speed with a Turbo Boost top-end speed of 3.73GHz. Intel claims its the fastest desktop chip on the planet; like geek
