Intel plans Q3 Core 2 Quad, Duo line-up shuffle

Steady as she goes before 'Nehelam' launch quarter

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

What does Intel have on its near-term desktop processor roadmap? More of the same, it seems, in the period leading up to Q4's introduction of its next-gen CPU design, 'Nehalem'.

The latest leaks coming out of Asia point to Q3 introductions of faster Core 2 Quads and Duos. The quarter will apparently see the debut of the 3GHz Q9650, the 2.66GHz Q9400, the 3.33GHz E8600 and the 2.66GHz E7300.

They'll be priced at $530, $266, $266 and $133, respectively.

All three introductions will see existing processors come down in price to make room for the new parts. Some CPUs will get pushed off the list as a result: the 65nm Q6700, and the 45nm Q9450 and Q9300 will be dropped from the four-core range, while the E8300 will be excised from the two-core list too.
