Intel has yet to release its next-generation micro architecture next month, but apparently folks in Taiwan have already managed to obtain and overclock an engineering sample for a Nehalem-based Core i7 965 Extreme processor – with some very promising results.

According to CPU-Z screenshots, the Core i7 chip made it from its 3.2GHz stock speed all the way up to 4.2GHz using a core voltage of 1.72V – which is above the danger-mark if we take Intel’s warnings into account.
