Intel E6500 coming next week
Cheap 2.93GHz Wolfdale
Intel will introduce a new Wolfdale-based dual-core sometime next week, and at $84, the new 45nm part sounds like a good deal.
The E6500 runs at 2.93GHz, FSB1066, and it has 2MB of cache, while its TDP is a rated at a comfortable 65W. It's expected to launch on August 9 or 10, and it will coexist with the E6300 which now sells for around $70.
It's not a spectacular piece of silicone, but a Wolfdale at just under 3GHz for $84 is a rather good deal.
