AMD isn't the only one sharing silicon today, the new Core i5 Lynnfield series is making headlines as well. There are no direct comparisons
as of yet, but the pictures at Expreview show some interesting hints at the performance of the new chip. It uses a different socket, LGA 1160, and will be priced below $200, so do not imagine a direct competitor to the Core i7 especially if Intel does wait until Q3 2009 to start selling these chips.
