Intel Reveal First Of 1333MHz Chips

E6750 Brings 1333 FSB

| Posted: Jun 26, 2007 1:06 am

Intel have today unveiled the first of a new range of Core 2 processors to hit the market in the near future, and several websites were lucky enough to be given samples for preview.

 

This new Core 2 Duo E6750 chip is much like the existing E6700 chip; It too is based on a 65nm fab process and also runs at 2.66GHz. But what makes this new processor stand out from the crowd is the native 1333MHz FSB (as opposed to the usual 1066MHz chips released to date).

 

This processor is also based on an entirely new stepping/revision of the Conroe core, and as such it appears to overclock like a real gem as well.

 

Another highlight is the supposed pricing on this first of a new crop of 1333MHz chips. Dailytech have dug a little deeper to find out what it'll likely sell for, somewhere around the vicinity of $183. Dirt cheap!

Hot Hardware:-
Today's news falls into the category of an early announcement as well; a sneak peek, so to speak. In the coming weeks - sometime later this summer - Intel will be officially launching a whole line of desktop processors that feature 1333MHz front side bus frequencies, which is a healthy boost from the current desktop standard of 1066MHz. We've actually got one of these new 1333MHz FSB-equipped chips in house, the Core 2 Duo E6750, and while we can't disclose all of the details regarding this processor just yet, we can talk about its performance and overclockability. And that's is exactly what we're going to do here today, but first let's get some of the particulars out of the way.
