Intel discontinues Pentium, Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad CPUs
Feb 08, 2011: Last October, we published a story detailing upcoming discontinuation of many Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad microprocessors, and two Pentium Dual-core models. Yesterday Intel published Product Discontinuation Notifications (PDN), that provide End-of-Life milestone dates for these CPUs.

Intel to discontinue Core 2 Quad CPUs in 2011
Oct 05, 2010: In August, Jetway Computer Corporation updated Q3 desktop motherboard roadmap, and added discontinuance notice for Intel socket 775 microprocessors. As stated by the roadmap document, Product Discontinuance Notices (PDN) were published for Core i7-975 and Celeron E3200 CPUs in Q3 2010, and the last order date for these CPUs is Q1 2011. In the first quarter 2011 Intel plans to issue PDNs for Core 2 Quad Q8300, Q8400, Q8400S, Q9505, Q9505S, Q9550, Q9550S and Q9650 CPUs.

my brother has got this model cpu, i have the e8200 the e8500 can be overclocked to 4.4Ghz and run stable 24/7 the e8200 version i have overclocked to 3.7Ghz on stock cooler running stable 24/7 so these cpus are Excellent overclockers

The usage of the word "speed" in relation to frequency or clock rate

2008-11-09 22:58:08
Posted by: Mr. Mentor

CPU World & readers..

Frequency is not a "speed" that you read in MHz any more than you speedometer or airspeed indicator in your car/airplane reads a frequency in MHz or GHz. Look up the formal definition of "speed" and see how much it says about frequency, clock rate, bandwidth or data rate in relation to computing. Probably not all that much..

How did the usage of the word become distorted to represent bandwidth or, more specifically data rate? Marketing departments and uneducated usage on the Internet which are NOT technical by nature, trying to appeal to the public at large on a technical issue. Their answer would probably be, 'we must keep it in "simple" terms that the public can understand.'

Another source of verification is simply asking a physics instructor from high school through the university level to detail what exactly is "speed" by definition and in mathematical terms.

Response: You're right - "Bus Speed" is not a correct term. We will replace it with other term, possibly "Effective bus frequency".

Speed is correct in referring to a bus frequency. Spedometers do read a frequency but no, not in GHz, but Hz which in that case is Miles per hour. Definitions change with time, usage and society.
We have been doing quite well with our CPU and bus speeds for years now.
