Intel is launching its new low-cost Core2Duo processor next month on 19 October 2008.

The dual-core E7400 is based on 45 nanometer Wolfdale platform which supports MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST), Intel 64 (Intel's x86-64 implementation), XD bit (an NX bit implementation) and iAMT2 (Intel Active Management).

The E7400 is a faster version of E7300 CPU, the new processor is clocked at 2.8 GigaHertz, comes with 3 MegaBytes of L2 cache memory and will cost US $133. This will probably be the last processor before the new Core i7.

Intel has also announced price cuts for two of its Quad-Core processors on the same day.

Core2Duo E7400 Specifications:
Speed: 2.80GHz
Cores: 2
Cache Size: 3MB L2 Cache
Bus Speed: 1066MHz
Manufacturing technology: 45nm
Socket: LGA775
Power TDP: 65W
Price: $133

    Is this processor better than the Core 2 quad processor?

    No, not quite. Technically Core2Quad is faster but the applications running on your pc have to make use of all the 4 cores in order to take the best out of Quad Cores. Furthermore, Quad cores don't mean your PC will have double the speed of Dual core PC, since they still share a common memory at some levels.
    Thanks for the query.
