Intel today confirmed the launch of two new desktop processors – the  Core i7 970 and the  Core i5 760.

Leading the pack is the Core i7 970.  It is Intel’s first six-core processor outside of the Extreme Edition or Xeon chips. It is a 32m dye and clocks at the same 3.2GHz as the quad-core 960. The chip can handle as many as 12 program threads through Hyperthreading and ramps to 3.46GHz with Turbo Boost.

The Core i5 760 2.8GHz is a  4 core chip aimed at mid-point of the PC market. Like other desktop Core i5 chips does support Turbo Boost for an unspecified higher speed with fewer active cores.

Intel doesn’t list pricing, but retail kits from online retailers are around $210 for the Core i5 760 and $900 for the Core i7 970.
