Some googling shows that some say it's 1.6GHZ others 1.66GHz and is mostly installed brand name computers. So it appears it's either a 266x6 or 333x5 or even a 200x8 (my vote is a 266x6). Maybe it was made available to system builders but not the retail market?

Hard to say as those numbers are not definite, I couldn't find anything official. Though I really didn't dig too deep. If it is indeed what I have found then I'd have my doubts it's worth it as I think the e8400's are under $200 now. If he's a friend then ask him if you can put it in your system and see what the BIOS says is default and what CPU-Z says about the cache, then you'll know for sure what you've got.

You sure it's not a T5500? Made for Laptops? Intel® Core™2 Duo Mobile Processor T5500 - SL9SH
