Intel expects dual-core processors will account for 65% of Intel's DT segment shippings in Q4 2006. For Q2 2007, the company expects the Core 2 Duo will account for 50 percent of the total shipment.
To further push the market share, Intel has proposed 3 strategies. The first is to produce intrinsic 2MB L2 Cache processors in Q1 2007. Second is to raise the ratio of Core 2 Duo into 50% of shipment in Q2 2007. Last is to release Core 2 Duo which has no VT in Q3 2007.

Besides Quad Core Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 (2.66GHz/4MB L2 x 2/1066MHz FSB) upcoming in Nov 2006, there is a cheaper version of Quad Core coming in Jan 2007. This would be Intel Core 2 Duo Q6600 (2.4GHz/4MB x 2/1066MHz FSB). However, as its price is too high as $851, just a little bit cheaper than Core 2 Extreme QX6700 at $999, it’s estimated that this model would not give sale surprise to the market.
