C2D E5000 45nm in April Posted on 16/11/2007 at 17:06 by Nicolas
ntended to replace the Core 2 series Q6000 & E6000 (quad and dual cores, respectively), the majority of Penryn desktops arriving in January are already known. However, we weren’t yet sure of what was to become of the Core 2 Duo E4000.
According to Digitimes, Intel could replace them with a Core 2 Duo E5000 starting in April. Prices will remain unchanged at around $133 each for thousand unit orders and there is no information concerning their specifications. This processor does, however, bring to mind a Wolfdale equipped with 3 MB of L2 cache and an FSB 1066 MHz which appeared on a roadmap several months ago.
Our Taiwanese colleagues also remind us of the planned release of a Core 2 Duo E8190 which is practically identical to the E8200 except that it is stripped of Trust Execution Technology & Virtualization Technology. This is good news for OEMs that are always happy to save a few dollars on large orders.
