C2D E6320

Ive been planning to build a computer for a long time now and was wandering when the c2d e6320 will be coming out. I looked around the net some sites said Q2, some said Jan 21, can anyone clarify a specific or estimated date? Thanks

  1. 2007 Q2 :D
  2. Thanks ;D
    Is the extra 2mb cache worth waiting for? Or would i be better off buying the e6300 or e4300? I plan to OC to about 3ghz w/Gigabyte S3 board and 1gb of gskill ddr2 800.

    btw the gigabyte s3 board is the same as the ds3, except the ds3 has solid copacitors (or somthing) that should make it last an extra 2-3years.
  3. I'd wait. I reckon that the 2MB extra cache is worth it. also I'd reccommend 2GB RAM.
  4. what are the specs of this new c2d?

    8O Don't forget the new ASUS P5B-E Plus.

    Has solid caps too :)
  7. nah nigga, i meant the new e6320...

    what are the specs on it?

    how much is it gonna be?
  8. When a e6300 is overclocked to the same speed as a e6600 (which has 4 megs of cache), it seems that the additional 2MB of cache doesn't make much of a difference. Also, C2D CPUs with 4MB of cache run hotter at the same clock speed.

    The 4MB vs 2MB is roughly 7% advantage in performance, at same freqfency.
    Also the 4MB C2D is not running hotter than 2MB C2D. The 2MB is actually an 4MB C2D with 2MB dissabled. There was an article about this, I'll try to dig it up.
