Posted on Wednesday, Apr 05 2006 @ 00:20 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Intel is switching the Core Duo T2600, T2500 and T2400 processors from C-0 to D-0 stepping.

Here's a look at the changes:
  • A BIOS update is required for D0-Step Products.
  • The D-0 stepping is backwards compatible with the C-0 stepping.
  • All C-0 products supported under Intel's Stable Image Platform Program (ISIPP) will continue to be supported on D-0 stepping.
  • To improve package quality, D0-Stepping products use a package with Reverse Geometry Caps. The visible package differences are cosmetic only.
