Rumors have surfaced at Anandtech of a new CPU due to be released by Intel in the near future. Changes were spotted in the Material Declaration Data Sheets yesterday that point to a new product, which appears to be the i7-2700K.

Further details are unconfirmed as of yet, but it’s likely to involve a speed bump (to 3.5 GHz/3.9 GHz Turbo or 3.6 GHz/4.0 GHz Turbo) and a price drop to place the i7-2700K at the current 2600K price point. We’ll have to wait for further details, but it will be interesting to compare and contrast how well this second batch of Sandy Bridge i7 chips overclocks compared to the first.

It looks like Intel couldn’t let AMD’s upcoming Bulldozer architecture steal the spotlight any longer; we’d expect the release dates of the 2700K and Bulldozer to coincide
