Intel ships three new-old CPUs

Celeron, Pentium and Core 2 Quad

 

Intel has started shipping three new CPUs, which really aren't that new, or exciting for that matter.

The Core 2 Quad 9500 is a no thrills quad core clocked at 2.83GHz. It will replace the 2.67GHz Q9400 and the price should end up the same, €149.

The Wolfdale based Pentium E6600 is basically a slightly faster incarnation of the old E6500 and it's clocked at 3.06GHz. It is already available in Germany for €75, which is not bad, but it's not great either, as AMD is shipping its Athlon II 620 quad-core at virtually the same price.

The E3400 is available for €46. It's clocked at 2.6GHz and like the E6600, it's based on the Wolfdale 1M core. Sounds like decent deal for office machines or undemanding consumers.

Although Intel's Core architecture is going from strength to strength, we will still see quite a few Socket 775 processors in the months to come, especially in the low end.
