Scores 2569 CPU points in 3DMark06

Taiwanese overclocking Guru Coolaler got his hands on one of Intel's upcoming mobile Penryn X9000 CPUs and has done a short preview of what will be offered. The CPU is clocked at 2.8GHz and it will be the fastest of Intel's mobile CPUs, come the Santa Rosa refresh early next year.

The CPU features 6MB of L2 cache and it operates on an 800MHz FSB. With regard to the CPU in question, it was an engineering sample and a B1 revision, so it is not quite ready for the mainstream as yet.

There's very little information about the notebook it was fitted to, apart from that it was using a GeForce 8600M GT graphics card, a screen resolution of 1280x800, had 2GB of RAM and was running Windows Vista Home.

The CPU managed to score 2,569 points in the CPU test in 3DMark06 and the overall test score was 3,451. It would finish a 1M run of SuperPi in 16.973 seconds and a 32M run in 18min 58.473 seconds.
