More value "Conroe" products in the pipeline

Intel’s latest roadmap unveils a couple of upcoming products in the pipeline. The new products include three value dual-core processors and one new Core 2 Duo E6xxx model. All four upcoming will be based on Intel’s Conroe processor core.

Intel Core 2 Duo
E6390 2.13GHz 1066MHz 2MB
E4300 1.80GHz 800MHz 2MB
E4200 1.60GHz 800MHz 2MB

At the top of the spectrum is the upcoming Core 2 Duo E6390. This is a strange product as it is clocked at 2.13 GHz—same as the E6400 and higher than the E6300. It also features the same 1066 MHz front-side bus and 2MB of shared L2 cache as the E6400. However, the E6390 lacks Intel vPro and VT extensions. Intel EM64T, SpeedStep and Execute Disable Bit technologies are still supported though. Intel Core 2 Duo E6390 is expected to launch in Q3’07 with the upcoming Conroe 1333 MHz front-side bus refresh.

Launching next January will be the Core 2 Duo E4300—the first of the Core 2 Duo 4000 series. The Core 2 Duo E4300 will be clocked at 1.80 GHz and feature an 800 MHz front-side bus with 2MB of L2 cache. Core 2 Duo E4300 will not support vPro and VT technologies. Intel is expected to launch an E4200 model clocked at 1.60 GHz as well. Also mention in the roadmap is a Core 2 Duo E4400, though it doesn’t list the clock speed anywhere.

Pentium E 2100
E2160 1.80GHz 800MHz 1MB
E2140 1.60GHz 800MHz 1MB

DailyTech previously unveiled details of Intel’s upcoming Conroe-L single-core processors. The Pentium E1000 series was expected to launch in 2007. However, Intel’s latest roadmap makes no mention of the Conroe-L Pentium E1000 series. DailyTech believes that Conroe-L has been cancelled in favor of a new dual-core Pentium E2000 series.

The Pentium E2100 series is expected to launch in Q3’07 and replace existing Pentium D 9xx and Pentium 4 6xx series processors. Pentium E2000 series processors will be based on Intel’s Conroe core and arrive with two models—the E2160 and E2140. These models are expected to be clocked at 1.8 GHz and 1.6 GHz on an 800 MHz front-side bus.

Differentiating the Core 2 Duo E4000 series and Pentium E2100 series is the total L2 cache size. Pentium E2100 series processors feature 1MB of L2 cache—half that of the Core 2 Duo E4000 series. Intel technologies such as Viiv, vPro and VT are unsupported. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep, EM64T and Execute Disable Bit technologies are supported.
