The Intel Core i3-530 CPU is known to exist by has not yet been made official by Intel. This is expected to happen in early 2010. Today the processor has tuned up on a Canadian retailers website called A-Power.
The website lists the chip for sale at the equivalent of $150. The specifications are listed as 2.9GHz with dual-cores and a 512KB cache with 4MB of L3 cache. The CPU uses the Westmere architecture and is built on the 32nm process.
We already know the chips are in production, but Intel won't say when the official launch will be. Surprisingly the chip is still listed for sale on the retailer's website. I figured the Intel ninja assassins would have descended on the website already and hacked the product from the pages.
