Intel readies low-end Core 2 Quad Q7500
Since AMD's 45nm AM3 quad-, tri- and dual-core processors are expected to debut next month, it seems Intel is planning to take on its rival's line-up not only with price cuts but also with a new release, that of the Core 2 Quad Q7500. Made using the 45nm process, the CPU has a working frequency of 2.6 GHz, a TDP of 65W, a FSB of 800MHz and just 2MB of L2 cache, half the size of Q8000 series models and six times less than the Q9x50s.
While the small L2 cache size is worrying, the Q7500 may end up a very attractive part depending on its price tag which should be under $150. There's no info on its release date though so we'll have to wait for Intel to make a move.
