DailyTech takes a look at Intel's latest desktop processor roadmap which shows some new Core 2 Duo processor and the Pentium E 2100 line.
At the top of the spectrum is the upcoming Core 2 Duo E6390. This is a strange product as it is clocked at 2.13 GHz—same as the E6400 and higher than the E6300. It also features the same 1066 MHz front-side bus and 2MB of shared L2 cache as the E6400. However, the E6390 lacks Intel vPro and VT extensions. Intel EM64T, SpeedStep and Execute Disable Bit technologies are still supported though. Intel Core 2 Duo E6390 is expected to launch in Q3’07 with the upcoming Conroe 1333 MHz front-side bus refresh.
Launching next January will be the Core 2 Duo E4300—the first of the Core 2 Duo 4000 series. The Core 2 Duo E4300 will be clocked at 1.80 GHz and feature an 800 MHz front-side bus with 2MB of L2 cache.
