Dual-core Wolfdale processors get cheaper. No, we are not talking about the next price reduction. The thing is that Intel is simply launching a new inexpensive Core 2 Duo E7200 processor, which belongs to the progressive 45nm processor family, even though it has somewhat limited functionality. Will it become a new bestseller? Let’s find out now!

I don’t think anyone will argue that the transition to 45nm production process allowed Intel to significantly improve their processors on Core micro-architecture. It seems that the new CPUs from Penryn family didn’t get any revolutionary improvements compared with the older Conroe CPUs. However nevertheless, they boast a number of advantages that may seem insignificant at first glance, but combined altogether ensured a tremendous step forward, so that these new processors proved totally praiseworthy.
