. The roadmap reveals early plans for the Yorkfield-based Core 2 Extreme and another Core 2 Duo E4000-sequence processor. With Yorkfield, Intel differentiates the Core 2 Extreme and Core 2 Duo models by the front-side bus speed.

Intel Core 2 Extreme Yorkfield processors will have a 1333 MHz front-side bus, continuing on where the Kentsfield Core 2 Extreme QX6850 leaves off. The quad-core processor supports Intel VT, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep and Intel 64 and Execute Disable Bit technologies. Intel leaves TXT technology out of the 45nm Core 2 Extreme however.
DailyTech also writes Intel will launch a $133 Core 2 Duo E4600 processor in the fourth quarter of this year. The E4600 will have a 800MHz FSB and will be clocked at 2.4GHz. The existing Core 2 Duo E4500 will drop to $113 when the Core 2 Duo E4600 launches.
