Pentium 6960 comes in Q1 2011

Fastest Pentium to date

Intel is still tweaking its roadmap and it appears that it is planning to launch the fastest Pentium to date. Intel currently sells Pentium 6950 for around €70 and for this price you can get a dual-core "Clarkdale" 32nm with integrated graphics and 2.8GHz clock speed. In the US the same CPU sells at $99.99, which seems quite high.

Intel wants to set the bar higher and introduce a new Clarkdale, now clocked at 2.93GHz while the graphics works at 533MHz. It is a 73W part that fits in the LGA 1156 socket.

The launch date is Q1 2011 and this is the only change to existing Q1 2011 plan. Don’t worry, Intel still plans to launch thirteen new Sandy Bridge based Core 2xx0 CPUs .

What about the Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 965 Presler 3.73GHz?

I think they meant fastest at running games and apps, not in GHz. Wasn't the Presler a single core chip? I don't remember, it's been so long, I've had a Core2 and a core i3 since then.

I don't get it either.
Can someone knowledgeable explain?

Is this new "Pentium" chip same as the Core 2 brand?
How is it different from i7? etc etc

Even the Pentium Dual-Core E5000 series are better than that outdated 965.
If any CPU other than the G6960 could be called the fastest Pentium, it would be the Pentium E6800.

The Pentium E2000 series are based on the 1st generation Core 2 chips (65nm).
The Pentium E5000 series are based on the 2nd generation Core 2 chips (45nm) with 800MHz FSB.
The Pentium E6000 series are based on the 2nd generation Core 2 chips as well, but with 1066MHz FSB.
The Pentium G6900 series are based on the Core i3 chips.
