Desktop Roadmap Pre CES
Wed Dec 20 2006, 12:38
CHIP FIRM, INTEL will introduce a second quad-core CPU and it has scheduled the launch for January the 7th, just a day before CES starts.

The spec is the same as for the Q6700 CPU, but the new one runs at 2.4GHz instead of 2.66.

Intel plans to price it at $851 per piece. But if you are patient and you want to wait for Q1 2007, then you will be able to buy the same CPU for $530. The fastest Quad core, the Q6700 won't drop its price anytime soon.

Its dual-core brother - the E6600 - costs $316 at the same clock speed and it will drop to $224 in the second quarter 2007. It's up to you whether you want to wait or get one now. µ
