We finally got a sneak preview in Intel’s new plans. The big company plans to introduce a new Quad core called QX6800. There is no mystery this one is clocked at 2.93 GHz, has 8 MB cache memory
This baby will work at 1066 MHz FSB only while dual core CPUs will go to 1333 MHz FSB. This is expected to happen at Q3 2007.
Until Q3 2007 Intel won’t have any new performance part in this market and quad core QX6700 will remain the fast and most expensive extreme performance part.
The QX 6800 part is socket 775 compatible and based on Kentfield 65 nanometre core. This CPU has to hold the water till Intel introduces its 45 nanometre Yorkfield in Q1 2008.
