Intel quietly launches the X7900
Barley on the website
Intel has very quietly launched it's new high-end mobile CPU, the Core 2 Extreme X7900, which is the fastest Core 2 Extreme for notebooks that we'll see this year. Oddly enough, Intel hasn't added it to it's product comparison page as yet.
There's only a tiny listing for the CPU on the Core 2 Extreme page among its CPU listings and there isn't even a mention of clock speeds, just that it runs at 800MHz bus and that it has 4MB of L2 cache.
As we already know, the X7900 is clocked at 2.8GHz, 200MHz faster than the X7800 that was launched earlier this year. It's odd that Intel doesn't list any information what so ever on this new CPU and there's very little info to be found on the X7800 as well, since neither CPU is listed in Intel's Processor Spec Finder.
Anyhow, if you want to check out what little info there is, click here and look under Intel Core 2 Extreme mobile processor.
