| Posted: Jul 16, 2007 12:00 pm

Intel has officially announced a complete new lineup of Core 2 processors today, most of which are designed to operate at 1333MHz front-side bus speeds.

 

The new lineup comprises a Core 2 Duo E6550 (2.33 GHz), Core 2 Duo E6750 (2.66 GHz), Core 2 Duo E6850 (3.0 GHz), Core 2 Quad Q6700 (2.66 GHz - 1066 MHz BUS) and lastely a new flagship quad-core variant in the Core 2 Extreme QX6850 (3.0 GHz).

 

All of the above are 1333 MHz processors bar the Q6700. Tech Report has pricing and other info on the new family here, and with the curtain drawn back on these new chips, several sites have acquired some samples for review. You can check the coverage out as per the below links :-

Tech Report:-
True to its plan, Intel has officially taken the wraps off of a new lineup of Core 2 processors, most of which are intended to run at 1333MHz front-side bus speeds. Thanks to the magic of time travel, we've already covered these developments in some detail here at TR, most notably with our preview of the Core 2 Duo E6750 processor and our review of the chipset that Intel created to go along with it, the P35 Express. Cliff's Notes version: we found the faster bus to yield only minor, marginal performance gains with dual-core processors but expressed hope for larger improvements with quad-core CPUs.
