Intel has announced that they will be soon releasing the Q8000 series for all the Core 2 fans out there. Technically successor to the Q9550, the 8-series line of processors will unveil great speed, with a 1333MHz FSB capability for connection between PCI-AGP-CPU-and memory (NB to CPU) and also extremely great connection to Southbridge.
The Quad 8000 will go head on towards AMD’s triple-core CPU’s by launching at entry point. Good news for those who already burned money on power supplies. Now you’re probably wondering why it is a step down. Good question! Different from Intel’s Q9000 CPU line, the Q8000 series doesn’t support Intel’s VT. That’s Virtualization Technology (integrating multiple environments on one vPro capable system or the like).
