Default Intel C2D E8700

I figured the 8600 would be the last high end C2D... but perhaps I was wrong?

C2D E8700 is here - XtremeSystems Forums

E8700 spotted in the wild.

10.5x multi

5ghz anyone?

:D

I said a few months back that this cpu was coming, but I thought 3.2ghz, 400x8. Intel said long ago that Core i7 would only amt to 10% of procs shipped this year, so new Core2 Wolfdales were destined to be here now...

Makes me wonder if we will ever see a stock 400mhz FSB Wolfdale...

Its getting close!

Would definitely put that pc2-6400 memory to good use and the need for pc2-8000 more than ever.

I was able to hit 4.9 with my 8600 so I can't see why not.

Problably from Francios P. Shortly after Fugger noticed the thread, info was pulled from the Intel site...
