CES 2007 - Intel Hard-Launches Three New Quad-core Processors

| CPUs, Chipsets & SoCs News | Posted: Jan 9, 2007 2:14 am

Coinciding with the launch of CES 2007 today, Intel have just officially released a lower-priced quad-core processor to the masses, this being the Core 2 Quad Q6600, clocked at 2.4GHz. Not only this, but they've also announced a couple of workstation/server-oriented quad-core Xeon processors, the Xeon X3220 and X3210.


The DailyTech have all the details on them folks. Oh, and if interested, RegHardware and Techspot take a closer look at the new Q6600 quad-core desktop offering as well.


The Core 2 Quad Q6600 slots right below the current king-of-the-hill Core 2 Extreme QX6700 which launched two months ago. It's clocked slightly lower at 2.4 GHz and features 1066 MHz front-side bus. L2 cache size remains at 8MB like the Core 2 Extreme X6800. Pricing will be $851 per unit in 1,000 unit quantities with a price drop to $530 expected in Q2'2007. Online retailer ZipZoomFly currently has the Core 2 Quad Q6600 in stock for $989.99.
