E6300 2.8ghz vs E6300 1.8ghz on an Intel DP965LT


Intel seems to have released a E3600 2.8 ghz version of a previous 1.8 E6300. I have an Intel DP965LT Motherboard which is compatible with the 1.8ghz E6300. How do I know if the new 2.8ghz E6300 is comaptible too?

  1. Go on your motherboard's website and look up the model of your mobo with exact revision number. Then look up CPU support list.

    From what I can see, your mobo won't/can't run the new Pentiun Dual Core E6300. It's too old.

    Old E6300 is Core 2 Duo. New E6300 is Pentium Dual Core.

    Lol, I'm waiting for the renaming of Q9400 - i3 940 Clarkdae Quad Core!
  4. doesn't seem to make any sense....

    @ HundredIslandBoy: That's probabaly why I found the info on their website dubious and needed a second opinion...

    Although I was kinda hoping for something more technical like it's the socket or the nanometers or....meh...I'll take your words for it.
