Clarkdale, Intel's quad-core mobile CPU that will end up costing you $999 just got a brand and some interesting features. The brand is Core i7 920XM where X stands for eXtreme a M for Mobile.
The official clock speed of this CPU is 2.0GHz for all four cores with eight hyper treads but turbo feature of Nehalem CPU can get the speed all the way to 3.2GHz, at least for a single core.
As we said many times before Turbo can overclock one, two, three or four cores and it pays attention on the maximal TDP that cannot be exceeded. The CPU supports DDR3 1333 has 8MB cache and 55W TDP.
A 55W TDP is insanely high but that is the best you can get from high performance quad-core. The launch time should be last week of September.
