Intel is apparently readying a new budget dual-core processor. The Pentium D 805 will run at 2.66GHz on a 533MHz front-side bus, and should have 1MB of L2 cache per core. The chip will arrive in March of this year at a price point that's expected to be well below $200.
Although the Pentium D 805's performance may ultimately fail to impress, the chip could be a strong overclocker, especially since it's meant for a 533MHz front-side bus. A sub-$200 price point will also solidify Intel's position in the budget dual-core realm, as AMD has yet to release a cheaper dual-core chip than the Athlon 64 X2 3800+, which currently sells for $280 and up.
