Including low-cost, quad-core


According to
a new Intel Processor Pricing list dated December 28, the company has just recently expanded its 45nm Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad product lineups with five new mobile CPUs.

At the top of the list is the mobile quad-core Q9000 processor, which runs at 2.00GHz, a 1066MHz FSB and a 45W TDP and is launching at $348.  This price point is significantly less expensive than the existing QX9300, which is currently listed at $1,038, and the Q9100, currently listed at $851. 

Yet with relatively low price points, there is usually always a catch. In this case, the new Q9000 integrates only 6MB of L3 cache, while the other two models contain 12MB of L3 cache. On another note, Acer's new Aspire 8930G has been the first Notebook PC to feature the new processor.

On the other hand, Intel's new dual-core mobile CPUs are the 2.93GHz T9800 ($530), the 2.66GHz P9600 ($348), the 2.66GHz T9550 ($316), and the 2.53GHz P8700 ($241).  Each processor runs at a 1066MHz FSB and all are based on mobile Penryn architecture.  Additionally, "T series" processors usually have a 35W TDP, while the "P series" have a 25W TDP.
