Cheap Q8200 Quad Core 45nm processor soon
This should be fairly good bang for bucks. Intel is planning to release a Core 2 Quad Q8200 processor on the 31st of August. The processor is clocked at 2.33GHz CPU.
Obviously the quaddie will have a 1333 MHz FSB and 4MB of cache memory. Ruumored it that the CPU will sell for a wholesale price of $224 (that's per 1000 CPUs). By doing so the Q8200 will be the cheapest 45nm quad-core that money can get you. Both the Q9300 with its 2.5GHz clock and Q9400 with 2.66GHz clock will remain selling at ~ $266.
It should be a fairly intersting product, especially when you consider these processers typically can be tweaked and oerclocked to really good clocks.
