Intel intros Core 2 Duo

Intel has given the public a small sneak peek at an upcoming Core 2 Duo processor, the E8700, with a 3.5GHz clock speed, by posting specs of it on its knowledge database. While the page is no longer active, TechReport has learned that the CPU will also sport 6MB of cache, a 1333MHz front-side bus and a 65W thermal envelope. The chip shares the same Wolfdale design as the existing E8600 processor, leading many to believe it could be a faster version of that CPU.

There is no indication if or when the new 3.5GHz Core 2 Duo chip will be coming to the market or what it will cost. One hint as to the price of new chip is the cost of the current 3.33GHz E8600, the flaghsip Core 2 Duo chip, which today costs about $270. Intel tends to price newly introduced flagship chips at the price of current flagship offerings while offering the cost of older models.

    What the heck...

    If Apple could stick that in the iMac, I'd be willing to let them pass up the quad-core this time around. 3.5GHz isn't anything to yawn at. It'll turn the iMac into a room heater.
