Intel launches Core2 Extreme Edition mobile processor

16 July, 2007

Intel Corporation has released its first Intel Core2 Extreme mobile dual-core processor, which claims to be the the world's highest-performing mobile processor. By announcing the launch of Intel Core2 Extreme mobile dual-core processor, Intel adopts the brand from the flagship desktop offerings. The company is also planning to announce battery-friendly, quad-core processors for laptop computers in 2008.

Mooly Eden, Intel vice president and general manager, Mobile Platforms Group, said, "Laptops are the fastest-growing computing market segment, and there is increasing demand from those who crave the ultimate in video, gaming, and design computing performance yet want the freedom and flexibility that a laptop brings. Due to our innovative technology and design capabilities, we can offer world-class, power-smart performance for the most demanding mobile users, and are proud to offer it under our Intel Core 2 Extreme brand -- a name that has become synonymous with ultimate performance."

Both the cores of the Intel Core 2 Extreme X7800 mobile dual-core processor runs at a speed of 2.6 GHz. The processor also comes well equipped with mobile-specific power-saving features that help Intel's computer-maker customers deliver more energy-efficient and higher-performing designs.

On the technical side, to achieve more capability, the Intel Core 2 Extreme mobile processor bus ratio locks (overspeed protection) have been removed. So, greater technical flexibility in customising systems is achieved. The new grade of processors from Intel offers up to 28% more performance than the previous generation of processors.

Intel has also announced a new set of processors for the desktop computers. Intel Core2 Extreme QX6850 quad-core processor comes with a clock speed of 3.0 GHz, 1333 MHz system bus speed, and is mainly aimed at game developers looking to deliver new features and performance levels. Intel also announced new Intel Core2 Duo and Core2 Quad processors.

Another new processor from Intel, the new Intel Core 2 Extreme X7800 mobile processor is exclusively for the OEMs and has a clock speed of 2.6 GHz with 4 MB of L2 cache. It comes with a price tag of $851. Intel will start shipping the new processors in the next two weeks.
