Intel launches low cost chips

 

Intel has announced a new quad core and dual-core processor at the bottom end of its price and specification range and a new Celeron chip.

The Q8200 is a 2.33-GHz quad-core chip with 4Mb of level-2 cache, the lowest of any quad-core processor. This means that the speed of the chip is reduced as it can’t handle as many processes as processors with a larger cache.

The new processor is the second cheapest in Intel’s quad core range and is priced at US$224 per thousand.

The new dual-core processor is E5200, which has a core clock speed of 2.5GHz, 2MB of cache memory, and an 800MHz front-side bus. It costs US$84 per thousand.

Finally the new Celeron is the D450. It runs at 2.2GHz, has a 800MHz front-side bus and 512k L2 cache. It is priced at US$53 per thousand.
