Wolfdale 45nm 3.16GHz is C2D E8500

Roadmap:  Fastest dual core for January


While E6850, the 3.0GHz Conroe, is dropping to €235 as Intel prepares for 45 nm refreshed dual core parts, the Wolfdale dual core 45 nanometer 3.16 GHz CPU will be branded as Core 2 Duo E8500, and this will be the fastest dual core at launch.

It works with FSB 1333 and it will cost US$270 at launch. Currently, Core 2 Duo E6850 at 3GHz currently costs $270 in the US, so obviously Intel will try to get rid of these parts before the new dual core king E8500 joins the game.

The 3GHz E8400 45 nanometer part will drop to US$190, and this will happen in January when Intel expects to launch these parts. Conroe's days are certainly numbered.
