Intel Core 2 Extreme X7900 launched - mobile powerhouse

Posted on Wednesday, August 22 2007 @ 19:20:00 CEST by

Intel presented a new mobile gaming processor at the Games Convention in Leipzig, the Core 2 Extreme X7900. This 65nm chip is clocked at 2.8GHz with a 800MHz FSB and 44W TDP:
Just like the desktop part, Intel unlocked this processor as well, and the company is expecting that OEMs will implement the overclocking function for gamers. However, saying that is much easier than do it. On desktop side, this was a no-brainer with a massive number of 3rd party cooling vendors but laptops do not spot all that space for advanced cooling. Expect 3-3.2 GHz clock, but not much more than that. This might change once when we see Penryns coming out in force.

Intel's rep demonstrated the new processor inside two new laptops: Asus G2 and Dell's new baby codenamed The Beast. The Beast's market name was printed on a case itself, which has rather plasticky feeling - a rather boring M1730. This notebook spots interesting components in terms of central, graphics, and physics processing power.
