Running at 1066FSB the chip will be clocked at 2.93Ghz and use close to 150w. This quarter only expect production to be in the low thousands. In the 3rd quarter Intel will be releasing a refresh.

The real QX6800s will come out in Q3 with a new stepping of the core Core number core numeral 2. This new stepping will drop power we are told ‘substantially’, and pave the way for volume QX6800 production. It also bodes well for a dual core speed bump, but that may not be in the marketing cards.
