Intel is expected to welcome a new addition to its Core 2 Quad menu, following the launch of its Nehalem microarchitecture derived Core i7 SKUs, of course.

 

New addition to Core 2 Quad line-up in the works

 

This article from Fudzilla claims that, on November 30th, the Santa Clara, CA based company will launch a 2.5 GHz Core 2 Quad Q8300 flavour, utilising a 1333 MHz FSB and endowed with 4 MB cache.

 

Despite an identical clock speed to its Q9300 brethren, the Q8300 will feature less cache than its sibling and boast a launch price of $224, it appears.

 

Intel's Q8200 offering, running at 2.33 GHz, is expected to receive a price cut, to $193, thereby making room for this new addition.
