Intel ramps up quad-core game chips to 2.93GHz

updated 09:55 am EDT, Mon April 9, 2007

Intel QX6800 Quad-Core

Intel today added a new speed grade to its quad-core Core 2 Extreme line. The QX6800 reaches 2.93GHz -- matching the same speed as the dual-core X6800 released just last year while doubling the number of cores as well as the level 2 cache, which now tops 8MB spread across all four cores. Like the earlier Extreme models, the 2.93GHz version also sports an unlocked multiplier to encourage overclocking without much extra modification.

The QX6800 represents the fastest officially released quad-core Intel processor, complementing the faster but unofficial 3GHz Xeon used in Apple's Mac Pro. Processors running at the new clock rate are price at $1,199 in large volumes. [via DailyTech]
