Intel is allegedly planning to launch two new processors, the Pentium D 915 and 925. Both will be low-cost dual-core parts with a clockspeed of respectively 2.8GHz and 3GHz. They will have a 800MHz FSB, 4MB cache (2MB per core), 64-bit extensions and execute disable bit capabilities.

They lack Virtualization Technology but the Pentium D 925 will feature enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST).
The new Intel Pentium D chips are projected to be introduced in the third quarter of this year and will succeed the Intel Pentium D 805 processor, a dual-core chip introduced earlier in 2006 that retailed for about $150.

Intel’s Pentium D 805 chip worked at 2.80GHz and used 533MHz processor system bus, which did not allow it to become very popular among performance enthusiasts. Nevertheless, the processor could open the doors to “the dual-core” world to those, who may not have demand for performance-hungry computer games, but uses a multi-tasking a lot.
