Word from the lads at Fudzilla has it that Intel's latest roadmap shows two upcoming Core 2 Duo CPUs to enter their lineup, supposedly set for a launch date of June 3rd (just before Computex 07 winds up).
The E2160 and E2140 models will run at 1.8GHz and 1.6GHz respectively, both with 1MB cache and set for an 800MHz FSB.
If interested, there's also an active thread over at the XtremeSystems forums discussing these upcoming chips.
Intel plans to reveal two new Core 2 Duo based CPUs just days before Computex. Intel plans to introduce these two new CPUs on the 3rd of June.
The faster one, called E2160, is clocked at 1.8 GHz with 800 MHz FSB and a total of 1 MB of cache memory. This CPU will be introduced for under $100 or $84 to be more precise.
The E2140 is the slower part, running at 1.6 GHZ with the same 800 MHz FSB and 1 MB of cache. Both CPUs are basically Core 2 Duo parts with 1 MB cache memory. Dual core marchitecture is really becoming dirt cheap, whether you want it or not.
