Intel Core 2 Extreme 2.93GHz quad-core for $999

Posted on Monday, March 12 2007 @ 19:31:44 CET by

Earlier today we reported about a 70% percent price cut for the quad-core Q6600 processor from Intel in the third quarter and according to the Inq we can expect a new quad-core top model soon:
Chinese site HKEPC reports that the successor to the quad-core 2.66GHz QX6700 will be branded the QX6800 and will run at a speedy 2.93GHz. Obviously, it too is a four core processor.

The processor will be operating on an FSB of 1066MHz - considering Core 2 Duos will be launched alongside it running on a 1333MHz FSB, this seems an odd choice for an 'Extreme' enthusiast CPU.

The CPU will come coupled with 2 x 4MB of level 2 cache, and will cost $999 - the same price is the QX6700 on launch.

Most interesting of all is the fact that speeds in the Extreme-range, similar to the frequency of this CPU, weren't expected until 2008 - and then using the newly implemented 45nm fabbing process.
