Intel Mobile C2E Leak

Intel's just released Santa Rosa platform for the Core 2 Duo will start receiving updates as soon as July, a newly escaped roadmap shows. The semiconductor firm plans to release its first Core 2 Extreme processors ever released for notebooks sometime in July, offering at first a speed increase from 2.4GHz to 2.6GHz as well as unlocking the chip's clock rate multipliers to allow for overclocking in larger or heavily-cooled notebooks. An even faster 2.8GHz variant will be available by September, the roadmap explains. Each should still have the same 800MHz system bus and 4MB of level 2 cache as today's chips.

Both CPUs will cost $851 each for resellers buying Intel's standard 1000-unit batches when they launch in their respective timeframes. A multiplier-locked 2.6GHz Core 2 Duo for regular systems will appear in September and should trigger a series of price cuts for lesser models. Improved versions of the budget Celeron M should raise their clock speeds to 1.86GHz (July) and 2GHz (September) without changing in price. [via VR-Zone]
