Intel is a busy bird, they already made a couple of announcements this week and now eWeek reports the chipset giant will soon unveil a couple of new Core 2 Duo chips for Ultra Mobile PCs:
The Core 2 Duo U7600 and U7500 have been designed with a TDP (thermal design power) of 10 watts. TDP is an Intel term that refers to how much heat a chip has to dissipate. The chips also offer a 533MHz FSB (front side bus) and 2MB of Level 2 cache. The U7600 runs at 1.2GHz; the U7500's clock speed is 1.06GHz.
"Intel will be introducing for the first time our energy-efficient Core microarchitecture to the ultra-low-voltage segment of the market," an Intel spokesperson told eWEEK.
Gateway will be among the first OEMs to offer one of these low-watt Core 2 Duo processors in an ultraportable notebook. Starting May 3, Gateway customers will be able to order an E-100M ultraportable with Intel's U7600, according to Gateway officials.
