Core 2 Duo for the mainstream market is set to go under the names 6300 and 6400. The former is clocked at 1.86GHz, while the latter is runs at 2.13GHz.More details, including pricing and specifications, over at The Inquirer.
The 4MB parts are faster clocked, running at 2.40 and 2.67GHz. I don't know why, but seeing Intel in those lowly-GHz numbers after listening to hundreds of presentations in which we were encouraged to bow the the knee to the "gawd" of megahurtage make me feel a bit nostalgic. Especially since AMD is planning to intro 3.0, 3.2 and cherry-picked 3.4GHz parts.
What is the most interesting part is the fact that 1.33GHz FSB disappeared from the roadmaps, and it seems that Intel is having more problems with their FSB than they would like to admit.
