To revitalize Intel’s set of mobile processors, they are releasing five new additions to the family of mobile CPU’s. The processors come in the Core 2 and Celeron flavours and are specifically aimed at the mobile market.
As a successor to the SP9400 2.40GHz for around the next two quaters, the Core 2 Duo SP9600 2.53GHz will be released. Boasting 6MB of L2 cache, a 1066MHz FSB, 25w TDP and a ~£158 wholesale price, this CPU ought to top dollar in the notebook market.
In the low voltage sector of the market, the Core 2 Duo SL9600 2.13GHz shares the same specifications as the SP9600. For the even lower-voltage market of processors (e.g. netbooks) there will soon be the SU9600 1.6GHz, entailing 3 MB of L2 cache, an 800MHz FSB, 10w TDP and a ~£150 wholesale price.
As for single-core CPU’s, comes the Core 2 Solo SU3500 1.40GHz. With 3MB L2 cache, 800MHz FSB and using only 5.5w TDP, this sounds like it could be a very popular processor in even less power saving netbooks.
Lastly there’s the Celeron based Mobile 900 2.20Ghz which is loaded with 1MB L2 cache, 800MHz FSB and only a ~£35 whole sale price. That’s what I call bang for buck!
Without-a-doubt we’ll be seeing these processors in upcoming notebooks and netbooks.
