Intel to launch lower price quad-core CPU

Post by Rahul on Mon Jun 16, 2008 1:38 pm

Intel is planning to launch a Core 2 Quad Q8000 CPU series, offering entry-level prices to counter AMD's triple-core
CPUs in the mainstream market, according to sources at motherboard makers.

Intel will launch the Core 2 Quad Q8200 in the third quarter this year, supporting FSB up to 1333MHz, L2 cache of 4MB and a
core frequency of 2.33GHz. Pricing will be set around US$203 in thousand-unit quantities

I wonder when these will hit Indian shores, also will they be feasible to use over commonly available Dual Cores

Demonstrating new product is a marketing strategy.

This for those users who wish to tell their neighbors that " see my pc is running a Quad core i.e. 4 cores at once"///// but i doubt even if its 55nm arct how far it holds its name against C2D 8400/8500...

or its just a marketting strategy for seeling a old champ in a new cover with a slight change in looks n getups
