Intel Q6600 : Quad Core for everyone Posted on 14/09/2006 at 16:37 by Marc
Additionally to the Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 (the official denomination of the Kentsfield) expected in November, Intel will democratise the Quad Core from Q1 2007 with the Q6600. The sales denomination of this processor (Core 2 Quad?) is still unknown. It will include two dies of E6600, be clocked at 2.4 GHz and use a FSB of 1066 MHz. The QX6700 will be clocked at 2.67 GHz and use a FSB of 1066 MHz, and not of 1333 MHz as predicted by various rumours.
The price of this processor is unknown since it isn't included to the current price list which will be in use until January. We noted by the way in this list that there are Core 2 Duo processors price cuts.
