Intel's Core 2 Quad Q8000 coming soon

The new quad line will go head to head with AMD's triple-core CPUs. Another reason to stick with Intel?

The motherboard makers have spoken, and like a collective fortune cookie, they have predicted that Intel’s launch of Core 2 Quad Q8000 CPU series is just around the next corner.

Intel’s Core 2 Quad Q8000 CPU series will go head to head with AMD's triple-core CPUs, by offering entry-level price, according to trusty source DigiTimes.

Intel's Core 2 Quad Q8200, which supports FSB up to 1333MHz, has a core frequency of 2.33GHz and L2 cache of 4MB, should be unveiled by Q3 2008, and will set buyers back by about US$203 each for thousand unit bulk buys.

Unlike Intel’s Q9000 CPU line, the Q8000 series doesn’t support Intel's VT and TXT technology.
