Intel is releasing a new quad core processor based on the Yorkfield cores, the Q9505. The Core 2 Quad has specs almost identical to that of the Q9550, with a clock speed of 2.83GHz, and a FSB of 1333MHz. The major difference here is the L2 cache, with the Q9505 having 2 x 3MB and the Q9550 having 2 x 6MB. The new processor will support all of the features of the series, including VT, and is selling in Japan for PY 22,770. Look for the processor to hit the states at a price of around $210 USD.
