Is Intel coming with Core 2 Duo E8700?


Without announcement, a new processor has been added on the Intel site: the Core 2 Duo E8700. The dual core processor would run at 3.5 GHz.

The page has since been taken offline, but a printout can still be viewed here. Intel has never mentioned the E8700, so it’s not unlikely that the processor will never make it. On the other hand, the E8700 can compete well with the new Phenom II processors and the manufacturer may therefore keep it a secret for a while.

If it does come, it will be a 45nm dual core processor that does its work as standard at 3.5 GHz, at an FSB of 1333 MHz. The multiplier is set at 10.5 and the processor is also equipped with 6 MB L2 cache. With a TDP of 65 Watts, the maximum energy consumption is at the same level as almost all other Core 2 Duo processors.
