Intel continues to use the Pentium brand name for its series of downscaled Core 2 series processors between the Core 2 Duo and Celeron lines. Japanese website ASCII.jp spotted a new model under the series, the E6300, originally slated for end of May. A retail box was spotted at a ground store. The most peculiar part of the name is its model number "E6300", which that has been used by one of the earliest Core 2 Duo models. The Pentium E6300 however, is the faster chip. While the Core 2 Duo E6300 is clocked at 1.86 GHz, with 2 MB of L2 cache and 1066 MHz FSB, the Pentium E6300 is clocked at 2.80 GHz with the same FSB speed and L2 cache size.

The fact that the core 2 named cpu's fall behind the Pentium branded processors with the same name kind of bothers me a bit.

Yep $30 more for the extra 1MB cache, but it all depends on whether or not what you're doing requires a large cache. I'd like to see how it fares against the next best $90 AMD offering!

This is the $90 AMD processor. It will crush E6300 at multi-tasking, but maybe not gaming. Duncan1 is right, E6300 should sell for $84 when it officially reaches retail.

That is exactly why I went with Intel over AMD.

and come with an unusually high faliure rate for CPUs...
B2 Phenom is known to carry the TLB erratum, which does not result in CPU failure. It only affects reliability in mission-critical environments and overclocking headroom (myth), to the PC consumer who isn't interested in serious overclocking, it's of little or no consequence, if that's what you meant.

Interesting news. Any info on TDP?

...while the latter is ..., the former is ..
(politely) Very confusing sentence structure. Former and latter should be in that order, logically, and should also refer to chronological order, not the out-of-chronological-order that you constructed (or quoted) in your sentence. The odd sentence may have been picked up from the source document.

Yes, natives and fluent foreigners can decypher what you mean, but the sentence structure is odd, overly complex for intermediate speakers, and misses a diamond award: http://www.plainenglish.co.uk/ :toast:

Thanks for info. I really hope Intel "closes" s775 with lower power CPUs, like the Xeon range. 45W would be a nice lower end s775 CPU for silent/reduced power PCs.

More like this...

The 9600 might be cheap, but it is cheap for a reason, it sucks unless you are really going to use the multi-tasking, and most users will not. They overclock like crap, you'll be lucky to get to 3.0GHz with one.
