New Core 2 Processors
Core 2 Duo E6850, E6750, E6650 Dual Cores, Q6700 Quad Core
There are three new Core 2 Duo processors:
- Core 2 Quad Q6700 (2.66 GHz - FSB1066 only)
- Core 2 Duo E6850 (3.00 GHz, FSB1333)
- Core 2 Duo E6750 (2.66 GHz, FSB1333)
- Core 2 Duo E6550 (2.33 GHz, FSB1333)
All four utilize the latest G0 stepping of the Conroe core, with 4 MB L2 cache. There is no E6650 because the processors use only even multipliers, which leaves no room between 2.33 and 2.66 GHz.
Core 2 Extreme QX6850 Quad Core
The Core 2 Extreme QX6850 is the latest addition to the quad core family. Like the E6850, it runs at FSB1333 system speed with a core clock speed of 3.0 GHz. This makes it the fastest quad core processor Intel has produced so far, but it outperforms the QX6800 at 2.93 GHz only marginally.
