Default Intel to speed up introduction of 1333MHz CPUs

Intel to speed up introduction of 1333MHz CPUs
Monica Chen, Taipei; Esther Lam, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 20 June 2007]

In order to grow penetration of 1333MHz front-side bus (FSB) CPUs and boost Intel 3-series desktop chipset (Bearlake) sales, Intel plans to suspend production of five 1066MHz Core 2 Duo CPUs by late 2007, according to sources at motherboard makers.

Intel will suspend landing orders for five 1066MHz FSB CPUs, including E6600, E6700, E6300, E6320 and E6420, by late 2007. Final delivery schedule is set as the first quarter of 2008, the sources detailed.

Since the previous 965-chipset motherboards cannot support CPUs that run at 1333MHz, and Intel is about to introduce its latest Core 2 Duo E6050 family on July 22 along with the introduction of more 3-series chipsets, Intel will thus speed up the transition to higher FSB frequency CPUs, the sources explained.

The upcoming E6050 family includes E6550, E6750 and E6850 with core frequencies ranging from 2.33GHz, 2.66GHz and 3GHz. Pricing per thousand is US$163, US$183 and US$266 respectively – about 40% lower than the current 1066MHz CPU lineup.

On a separate note, Intel plans to boost its 3-series chipset shipment proportions to 38% in the third quarter, up from about 15% in the second quarter.

FYI, this is not a good thing for us ocers..
E6600 (9x multi) = $220USD
E6850 (9x multi) = $266USD

Same chip, 1066 vs 1333, so all they are doing is ocing the 6600 and selling it for more :( So much for the 40% drop… it works out to be a 17% increase for a chip that will likely clock to the same max. Hey I guess its great for people that run chips at stock.

I just traded my E6300 for a PD 805 and cash in prepartion of July 22. If retail dual cores are doing well, I will buy it, if not, I'll buy a quad.

Good article.

Yeah some of the original Conroe ES chips did 4GHz on air too. Just because the ES chips are insane overclockers doesn't mean the retail ones will be.
