Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 is the first native 2MB L2 Conroe at L2 Stepping. The processor is running at 1.8GHz, 800MHz FSB and 9X multiplier. Without adding voltage, 1066MHz FSB is mostly achieved and runs really stable. At 1066 MHz FSB, the clock speed is further enhanced to 2.4GHz. Compared with Core 2 Duo E6400 (2.13GHz/2MB L2/1066MHz FSB), this can provide a 10-15% higher performance, but the price is much cheaper, say Core 2 Duo E4300 @ $163 vs Core 2 Duo E6300 @ $183.
When Core 2 Duo E4300 is launched, Pentium D 945 (3.4GHz/2MB x 2/800MHz FSB) @ $163 will fade out and its market is replaced by Pentium D 935 (3.2GHz/2MB x 2/800MHz FSB) @ $133.
