Intel, "Clarksfield" Core i7 to launch a mobile: http://www.fudzilla.com/forum/index.php?topic=704.0
Top Model "Core i7-920XM Mobile Processor Extreme Edition" is the clock 2GHz, with 8MB cache, TDP is 55W.
Turbo Boost at the maximum clock of 3.2GHz. Each in 1,000-unit quantities of 102,320 yen.
That can be easily overclocked Extreme Edition Only "Intel XMP" and to optimize the clock and battery life over "Intel Extreme Tuning Utility" to support.

The 2.66 GHz Dual-Core Core i7 620M that will overclock to 3.33GHz might easily end up as fast as the much more expensive Core i7 Extreme 940XM that will launch soon. http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/17848/41/
There is no documentation by source for the claims for the i7 620M; further, Intel states that the 940XM is to be automaticaly overclocked and limited by temperature increase.
The Dell Alien i7 series Laptop has not been fitted with "Intel's XMP CPU".
