Core 2 is a brand encompassing a range of Intel’s consumer 64-bit x86-64 single-, dual-, and quad-core microprocessors based on the Core microarchitecture. The single- and dual-core models are single-die, whereas the quad-core models 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, which previously had been divided into the Pentium 4, Pentium D, and Pentium M brands.
Intel has extended its line of desktop dual-core Core 2 Duo processors, adding an extra model to the set limited to an 800MHz frontside bus and beefing up the cache size of a number of 1066MHz FSB versions.
So, in comes the 2GHz Core 2 Duo E4400, fitted with 2MB of L2 cache. The existing E6300 and E6400, clocked at 1.86GHz and 2.13GHz, respectively, also contain 2MB of L2, but are now joined by versions at the same clock speed but with 4MB of L2 as per the remainder of the Core 2 Duo E6xxx series.

Wolfdale Processor Family: Core 2 Duo E8500, E8400 and E8200
The Wolfdale processor family announced these days that is based on 45nm cores will initially include three Core 2 Duo processor models: E8500, E8400 and E8200 with 3.16GHz, 3.0GHz and 2.66GHz respective clock speeds. Moreover, there will also be a CPU with E8190 model name, similar to Core 2 Duo E8200, but without the virtualization technology support. Later on the fifth CPU will join this lineup: Core 2 Duo E8300 with 2.83GHz clock speed. However, it should happen in Q2 2008 at the earliest. The table below offers a better look at the mass Core 2 Duo processors with 45nm cores:
