The new Core Duo T2700 is a 2.33GHz dual-core 65nm Yonah-based CPU, specifically targeted for high end notebooks and desktop replacement (DTR) devices. The processor is already shipping at some retail outlets, and should start showing up in high-end notebooks very soon. The previous high end model, the 2.16GHz T2600 will not receive a discount until the Merom launch later this year. The T2600 will sell for $637 in quantities of 1,000.More info over here.
Furthermore, Intel is also discretely rolling out its Core Duo U2500 ultra-low voltage (ULV) CPU. The U2500 is currently the only dual-core ULV product in Intel's arsenal until the 1.06GHz U7500 Merom processor launches with Santa Rosa in Q2'07. The U2500 is a 1.2GHz Yonah processor with 2MB L2 cache and a 533MHz FSB. The U2500 recently received some attention on DailyTech as it is the only x86 dual-core processor to ship with a 9W maximum TDP envelope. The CPU consumes less than 1W during normal operation. The U2500 will sell for $289 per chip in quantities of 1,000.
