Four 2.66GHz Intel CPUs on a single package for just a grand
Intel's newest roadmap started making the rounds last week, and the headline title across the roadmap was absolutely
, Intel's upcoming quad-core processor. During last month's investor call, Intel CEO Paul Otellini
announced the chips would be shipping this year
, as opposed to Q1'07 that was originally slated on the roadmap.
Now a few additional details of
have slipped out. Intel's most recent roadmap claims
, which will ship as a Core 2 Extreme branded processor, will run each core at 2.66GHz and a 1066MHz front-side bus. Essentially, the processor is two Core 2 Duo E6700 processors packaged onto a single CPU.
There is no announced ship date of
yet, though Intel has announced that the processor will ship for $999 -- the same as every other "Extreme" processor the company has announced. Intel has no price cuts for the E6700 processor planned until after the quad-core
launch as well. Since the E6700 has a distributor price of $530, the
actually offers some discount for the second core.
Absentees from Intel's roadmaps include a 3.2GHz Core 2 Extreme processor. The company
officially stated that such a processor would follow the existing 2.93GHz Core 2 Extreme
that is available today. However, it seems fairly evident that the quad-core
supplanted any new dual-core Extreme processors.

Finally a "Extreme Edition" processor that deserves the name for something other then the price!
I'm imagining Quad Cores bing great for running lots of VMware instances. This a nice boon for distributed computing devs and testers.
A single Quad core package (yes, i know it's 2xC2D dies) ... anyone else thinking beyond ultimate LAN Party / Dev box with that thing inside of a SFF or uATX case?
