    Intel's next addition to the budget Core 2 Duo E7000 series, the E7400 is slated for fourth quarter 2008. This processor at a US $133 price-point will come with a 2.83 GHz core clock with a 1066 MHz front-side bus (FSB), with 3 MB of L2 cache and a rated TDP of 65W. More importantly, a high FSB multiplier would mean that at its price it could be overclockers' delight.

    yeah I look forward to seeing how well this thing clocks. 2.83ghz aint a bad stock speed for 133 bucks either.

    Wow, nicely priced, nice core speed at stock with the ability for some sweet OC'ing! Could it be Intel is attempting to "put the hammer down" while AMD is gasping? Certainly seems like Intel's last few moves have been rather strategic......

    Its 1066fsb so its got a 266fsb. 8.5 x 266 = 2.2ghz. Your thinking 1333 :p which is 333fsb. My e7200 has a 9.5x multi.

    I doubt it, then Nivida gets broken up for being a monopoly? Its just business trying to outdo your competitor. AMD still has alot of fight even if its at 5 a share. Although AMD may be in for some restructuring if their is a big takeover. With stock shares this low they are an easy target for buyout through a private equity takeover.

    What? 2.83Ghz? 1066FSB cannot give 2.83Ghz FYI with normal 0.5 increment multipliers. 266x10.5 = 2793Mhz; 2.8Ghz.
