HP adopts Penryn for customized notebooks

HP adopts Penryn CPUs

Confirming some earlier leaks, HP has formally begun using Intel's Penryn processors in a select number of its notebooks. The dv2700t, dv6700t and dv9700t should now all have the option of a 2.5GHz T9300 processor, which has a 6MB L2 cache and is approximately 10 percent faster than a similar chip from Intel's Santa Rosa platform. Choosing a T9300 adds substantially to the cost of a system however, at a price of $225.

In addition to increasing cache and speed specifications, Penryn processors also use a smaller 45nm architecture, reducing the power consumption that would be needed for equivalent speed on 65nm Santa Rosa technology. The new HP notebooks do not fully exploit 45nm manufacturing though, as enhanced motherboards are not yet in production. [via NotebookReview]
