Intel has plans to release a new Core i& Mobile CPU based on its new Sandy Bridge lineup, The Core i7 2920XM which will remain Intel’s fastest Mobile Processor till Q4 2011. The notebook chip will feature a clock speed of 2.5Ghz which can turbo upto 3.5Ghz while the 650Mhz IGP Core also allows for turbo boost upto 1300mhz. The chip is a Quad core with eight threads along with 8Mb of L3 Cache.
The Processor will make its way to the 17″ Gaming notebooks which can benefit alot from the 4 cores and 8 threads of the mobile beast. However, TDP of 55w is a pretty bad things as far as the temps and battery times are concerned. The chip is set to be released within upcoming months however a certain replacement with the upcoming Ivy Bridge platform is highly likely. The pricing for the chip will be set at $1096.00 until a faster processor is released.
