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.

What's the point?

The slides published by Matbe.com web-site claim that Intel will release Intel Core 2 Duo processors with E6850, E6750 and E6650 with 3.0GHz, 2.66GHz and 2.33GHz clock-speeds respectively and 1333MHz processor system bus in
I just got E6400 and will hopefully overclock it past 3.0ghz (so FSB will > than 1333 even). So why wait until Q3 of next year to get the same 65nm processors?
I would be far more interested in second generation dual core processors by late 2007 if anything.
Also having 3.0ghz by Q3 2007 seems ridiculously slow. I would have expected c2d to be close to 3.6ghz by end of next year given samples often overclock to those speeds today. With improved yeilds over time, 3.6 shouldn't be a problem. I guess they are going to milk the market for as long as they can.

The point is that for overclockers, the price of the lower FSB chips will fall, meaning you pay less for a chip you can OC to the same OC of a similar 1333MHz FSB chip. Assuming the possible percentage overclock drops, and the actual overclock stays the same, that is.
