    Intel made additions of three new chips to its mainstream thru value lineup of desktop processors. They include Core 2 Quad Q8300, Pentium Dual Core E5300 and Celeron Dual Core E1500.

    The Core 2 Quad is based on the 45nm Yorkfield-4M core. It has an operating frequency of 2.50 GHz and a FSB configuration of (7.5 * 333 MHz) with an effective FSB of 1333 MHz. It has a total L2 cache of 4 MB. This chip will be priced at US $224 (1000 unit tray). Pentium Dual Core E5300, based on Wolfdale-2M sports 2 MB of L2 cache and a clock speed of 2.60 GHz (13.0 * 200 MHz) with an FSB of 800 MHz. It will be priced at $86, displacing the E5200. The Celeron series is now lead by E1500, clocked at 2.20 GHz and an L2 cache of 512 KB. This chip is based on the older 65nm Allendale core, and is priced at $53.

    shame the quad is so expensive especially from the FSB limit the chips is apparently going to hit damn that multi is low thats going to hurt.

    yeah being a 1333 fsb chip with only a 7.5 multi will hurt for overclockers, i'd still take a Q6600 over this chip. especially with half the cache of a Q6600.... still, shouldnt make a difference for the "average" (non-tpu) user :p

    however this "Pentium Dual Core E5300, based on Wolfdale-2M sports 2 MB of L2 cache and a clock speed of 2.60 GHz (13.0 * 200 MHz) with an FSB of 800 MHz" should handily hit 4ghz as i can post 4ghz already on a 65nm variant of the same chip (E4700 - 13.0 * 200 MHz)

    Forget the quad, check the 13x multi on the dual. *drools*

    A friend of mine just ordered a Q8200 with the 7x multi. It was a big concern to me but at the same time I heard that the chip still outperforms the Q6600.

    At the same time the 45nm should help keep the chip cooler compared to the Q6600....but anyways I hope it still can at least hit 3.2ghz.

    3.2GHz will take a 457MHz FSB. 3.2GHz on a Q6600 would take 355MHz.

    The chip only outperforms a Q6600 at stock.

    My Q6600 sits happily at 400x8 for 3.2ghz, but much more than 425fsb is pushing it, even on a P45.

    i think its a granted that even with the 65nm to 45nm difference, a Q6600 will always be able to clock higher thanks to its 9x multi.
