Intel 65 nanometre desktop chips ready to roll
RELIABLE SOURCES said strange breeds of existing Intel desktop chips are set to flood the channel within the next few weeks.
The chips are in the 6XX series - but they all end in the number one, to differentiate the stock keeping units (SKUs) from existing 90 nanometre processors.
A hard job for an end user to find out what kind of chip is in their desktop in the next month or so, we suspect.
The chips are the 661 (3.6GHz), the 651 (3.4GHz), the 640 (3.2GHz) and the 631 (3GHz). All have 2MB of cache, 800MHz front side buses, and include a fan.
The prices will be around the same as the 90 nanometre chips. This shows that Intel is, in chip fab jargon, ramping up the 65 nanometre process. But, as we've already pointed out in previous stories, the 6XX family is not long for this world anyway, as Mr Conroe and his next generation are just round the corner anyway.

How much wil the 631 cost and what kind of headroom do you have OC-wise, most interesting for "value for money" overclockers

The 6xx series tend to be very good overclockers. But are not the cheapest.
The 3 GHz version still costs around 180 euro.
