Core 2 Duo, the sequel
Intel’s latest roadmap outlines plans for
2007 refresh. The upcoming refresh of Intel’s Core 2 Duo processor will arrive at the same time as the
3 series of chipsets
. This will be the first time Intel has refreshed its
. The refresh is quite minor this time around. Nevertheless the
refresh raises the front-side bus up to 1333 MHz and adds
Intel Trusted Execution Technology
Three refreshed models will debut with the upcoming
3 series chipsets. These models include the Core 2 Duo E6850, E6750 and E6650 clocked at 3 GHz, 2.66 GHz and 2.33 MHz respectively. At this point in time it doesn’t appear Intel has any plans for its Core 2 Extreme lineup, in terms of dual-core processors that is.
Core 2 Extreme QX6700
will remain as Intel’s flag-ship enthusiast product.
In addition to the refreshed
Core 2 Duo lineup, Intel will release one more 1066 MHz front-side bus endowed Core 2 Duo product. The upcoming Core 2 Duo E6800 will arrive clocked at 2.93 GHz—similar to Intel’s Core 2 Extreme X6800. The processor is expected to be Intel’s flagship processor for mainstream segments. Aside from the locked multiplier, the Core 2 Duo E6800 is identical to the Core 2 Extreme X6800.

decreased OC potential

you know, we are likely to see a decrease in OC potential with these new chips. Think about it...
Previously, with a locked multiplier, in order to overclock, we had to bump the FSB a ton. With these new chips, they have A) increased the "default" FSB, meaning we wont be able to push it as far (past the default,% wise) and with a decreased multiplier, we will be further limited.

Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't the C2D chips able to lower their multiplier but not raise it? I seem to remember ASUS giving their motherboards this feature.

Actually, theres a handy utility for Intel processors that use Speed Step technology. (Or what ever they are calling it now). It mainly used for Dothan and Yonah based Pentium M laptops. BUT I think the Core based series is based upon that processor deseign anyway, What I am getting at is that this handy little program messes with the Speed Step, Allowing you to select higher multipliers. (Managed to get my Acer Aspire 1680 1.6ghz Yonah to 2.4ghz!) If you google around a bit I'm sure theres something around. Even if you "Pencil" something on the processor. (A-la the AMD thunderbird processors). Or cover a pin. (Pentium 3 coppermine I think). Where there is a way, someone will find ways around Intel and AMD's Multiplier lock.
