Intel is going to add one more 45nm desktop processor to its January lineup, DigiTimes reports.
Besides the E8200, E8400 and E8500 CPUs the firm will also release the E8190 processor. This chip will be clocked at 2.66GHz and will feature 6MB L2 cache and a 1333MHz FSB. The E8190 will be priced at $163 in 1,000-unit quantities.
Although E8190's specification is similar to that of the E8200, the CPU does not support virtualization or Trust Execution Technology, and will only focus on the OEM market where it will be slightly cheaper when purchased in large volumes, added the sources.
Intel is also planning to launch the Core 2 Duo E5000 family to replace the previous E4000 family in the entry-level market. The first product from the E5000 family will launch in April next year priced at US$133 in 1000-unit quantities. Specifications are still unknown.
