HKEPC says that the E4300 is slated for release on January 21. They have a CPU-Z screenshot of it running 2.4GHZ@266FSB and stock voltage. This little killer chip should all but stop sales of X2 3600+,X2 3800+ and X2 4200+(i.e. nightmare for AMD). :lol:

Yeah, it should be an awesome value/overclockers chip. I'm hoping some can manage to hit 3.6GHz 400FSB for a 100% overclock. 8)

I hope Intel ramps up production so that they can cut more of thier product lines. In my opinion, Intel simply has too many different CPUs floating out there which can cause confusion. Of course that also means retooling the fabs that are still producing Pentium 4s.

Hmmm interesting, but not very exciting... meh

Either way, still waiting for AMD's response... cutting prices can't keep you up forever...

Finally! I was curious when intel would start selling the e4300. Finally a chip i can overclock without selling my ddr2 533. :) 

Thanks for posting it.

Is it true that Allendale processors won't support VT?
November 15, 2006 1:13:00 PM

Thank goodness Intel made it's numbering scheme a little easier to understand. I remember the days of:

What is better, a Pentium 4 901 or a Pentium 4 831jn? (Yeah, I made those models up)

I don't think so.
The price is E4300 is just slightly lower than E6300.

It's only gonna get worse. In a seperate article at HKEPC, they have a few more releases scheduled...E4200 & E4400, as well as an E6390(E6400/no VT). :?

Quote:
On the other side, the two members from Core 2 Duo E4000 family to be released in Q2 2007 include E4200 and E4400. These are running at 1.6GHz and 2GHz respectively, and same as the most of Core 2 Duo, these models contain 2MB L2 Cache and support 1066MHz FSB. Together with E4300 which will be released on 21 Jan 2007, Core 2 Duo E4000 family aim to replace Netburst Pentium D..

No, it's not true. Just the E6390(E6400) loses VT.

I actually don't mind more C2D CPUs coming. But it would be nice if Intel accelerated the demise of the Pentium. I like the following quote from the HKEPC article you linked:

Quote:
According to the internal estimation of Intel, Intel Pentium D has still got about 40% of the total shipment for Desktop in Q1 2007. Followed by the termination of 90nm Pentium D 800 family in Q2 2007, the proportion will slip to 25% while remaining 65nm Pentium D 900 family until Q3 2007. Then Core 2 Duo E4000 family will replace the vacancy of the market in Q3 2007.

I think INTEL won't let the value production nibble the high-end market,like Celeron never got the HTT as P4,E4000 have natural L2 2Mcache and no VT,but the ability of OC will be more expected

Yeah, it should be an awesome value/overclockers chip. I'm hoping some can manage to hit 3.6GHz 400FSB for a 100% overclock. 8)

ummmmmmm 2.4 -> 3.6 is a 50%/half oc, 4.8 is a 100%/double oc.

ummmmmmm 2.4 -> 3.6 is a 50%/half oc, 4.8 is a 100%/double oc.Stock speed for the E4300 is 1.8GHz(200FSB), so 3.6 is 100% O/C. :wink: The 2.4GHz CPU-Z SS was an overclock.
November 16, 2006 5:36:30 AM

Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 is the first native 2MB L2 Conroe at L2 Stepping. The processor is running at 1.8GHz, 800MHz FSB and 9X multiplier.


It is 1.8Ghz stock, the screenshot was an overclock on stock voltage.

I don't think so.
The price is E4300 is just slightly lower than E6300.

And the X2 3600+ is like what, $30 cheaper than an E6300? The X2 3800+ is currently $20 cheaper than the E6300, and the E4300 will come in at about the same price as the X2 3800+ and be ~10% quicker (and god knows how much quicker if overclocked)

So unless AMD cuts prices further on their low end X2s the E4300 will be the better deal.

I'm hoping some can manage to hit 3.6GHz 400FSB for a 100% overclock. 8)The more i think about it, the more the E4200 looks like the absolute sweet-spot for overclocking. Given it's 8x multi, a 400FSB will yield 3.2GHz(very attainable on most C2D's). The 9x multi of the E4300 will mean 3.6GHz, not as often reached, without better cooling, higher vCore, and good RAM. Though we don't know the price of the E4200 yet, i would guess ~$15 less than the E4300 or ~$148. Imagine a C2D that "should" get a 100% O/C for ~$150 and(at 3.2GHz) offer performance above any dual-core AMD has. :p  Gives me goosebumps. :wink:

I am optimisticly looking ahead at the 4xxx's too. My next CPU/Mobo will be aimed at the price/performance as all my hardware purchases are, and with the water kit I have ordered (yesterday) I should be able to get the 4300 a fair amount over 3Ghz if everything is as predicted.

For $150, a 3Ghz C2D is going to be a great budget deal.

I know exactly what you are talking about. Im looking to buy a new computer (if I ever get around to it) and this looks like a great buy since I don't want a top of the line CPU because I think that a GPU is more important to me (Gamer but I need a Dual core so I can multi task). This is a great CPU if it does OC like it should. Although what is VT and what does it mean if it doesn't have it?
November 16, 2006 5:24:14 PM

Dadgum it... That pisses me off even more that I needed my system built before Conroe out.

The forthcoming Pentium E2000 family will initially consist of two processors – Intel Pentium E2140 (1.60GHz) and Intel Pentium E2160 (1.80GHz) – both based on the Conroe 1M core and produced using 65nm fabrication process, according to a news-story by HKEPC web-site. The new dual-core chips will have 1MB of unified level-two cache, will be compatible with 800MHz processor system bus, will support 64-bit capability, execute disable bit, Intel’s Enhanced SpeedStep technology and will have 65W thermal design power.


These specs look similar to the E4300 except having only a 1MB cache. They should be $10 to $20 cheaper, but more expensive than the upcoming single core2 cpu's.
