Most of you remember the Calisto core which is actually a Deneb Quad core with two of its cores disabled. The Calisto is a really good Dual core CPU and with a 7Mb of cache it looks great.

The CPU comes with a 1Mb L2 Cache, 2x512KB per each core and a L3 Cache of 6Mb which is the same as the Deneb Quad core. The price of the CPU is said to be 100$ when its available in Q3 2010.
