Pentium E6700 pushed for Q4 2010
E6600 in Q3 2010
We have already mentioned the Pentium 6700, here and you might remember that it was supposed to launch in Q2 2010 but it will be pushed to Q4 2010 as E6600 should be just good enough.
The E6700 will be a successor of the E6600 CPU in legacy market segment. The Pentium E6600 that is supposed to launch in Q3 2010 should work at 3.06GHz has 1066MHz FSB, 2MB cache and it’s based on dual core Wolfdale 45nm core. The E6600 will replace the E6500 clocked at 2.93GHz.
The new CPU Pentium E6700 works at 3.2GHz and shares the rest of the specification. Selling price should be close to $99.99 at launch, and probably €99.99 in our part of the world.
This CPU will just strengthen Intel's value brand, better known as Pentium, which will remain the chipmaker's strongest brand through most of 2010.
