Intel's quad-core receives a 1333 MHz front-side bus upgrade

Intel plans to refresh its Conroe-based dual-core processors in Q3’2007. The planned Conroe refresh includes a faster 1333 MHz front-side bus for the dual-core processor. Intel’s latest roadmap unveils details of a front-side bus increase for its quad-core processors.

The quad-core 1333 MHz front-side-bus upgrade is initially limited to Intel’s Core 2 Extreme. Intel expects to debut its Core 2 Extreme QX6850 next quarter to the tune of 3.0 GHz, similar to the upcoming Core 2 Duo E6850. The Kentsfield 65nm core forms the basis of Intel’s Core 2 Extreme QX6850, as with its other quad-core products.

Aside from the front-side bus speed bump, the Core 2 Extreme QX6850 shares similar characteristics as the previously released QX6800. The new quad-core processor will have 8MB of L2 cache and support for Intel’s Virtualization, Enhanced Memory 64, XD bit technologies.

Expect the Core 2 Extreme QX6850 to arrive next quarter with pricing set at $999 per-unit, in 1,000-unit quantities. Intel also plans aggressive quad-core and dual-core price cuts in Q3’2007.

do you know how much it costs to make one of these chips? I doubt it. I do not either but it is obvious when a chip falls below 200 dollars that once was 500 dollars and the same cost is involved in making that chip.

amd is doing worse this year, it is only 80% raping you versus 110% raping you

raped.

You know what? You sound like a complete and utter moron that I am not going to even list the things that you got wrong.

Also, the fact that you just loooooooooooooooooooove to rape people is a little... disturbing.

Anyway. Like someone said before, the cost of 999 is the price in which Intel thinks it will sell the chips. Which it obviously does.
