Intel Core 2 Quad Processors
Intel Core 2 Duo 45nm Processors (Wolfdale)
Intel's Core 2 line of CPUS introduced a consumer level series of 64-bit x86-64 single-, dual-, and quad-core microprocessors based on the Core microarchitecture. As the naming suggests, single cores were one single on die core, while dual-core consisted of two cores on a single die and quad comprise two dies, each containing two cores, packaged in a multi-chip module. The introduction of Core 2 relegated the Pentium brand to the mid-range market, and reunified laptop and desktop CPU lines for Intel.
Intel introduced the Core 2 brand on 27 July 2006, with the following lineup: the Solo (single-core), Duo (dual-core), Quad (quad-core), and in 2007, the Extreme (dual- or quad-core CPUs for enthusiasts). Intel Core 2 processors with vPro technology (designed for businesses) include the dual-core and quad-core branches.
The first generation Nehalem microarchitecture processors of the 1156 Socket and above became the successors to the Intel Core2 Duo line. Today, the newest successor is the 1150 Haswell Socket, produced in Core i3, i5, and i7 varieties.
These cores are no longer being produced. We occasionally received stock through liquidation markets, if there are any available for sale they will be listed in our Quicksell Center.
