Intel: New mobile Dual-Core CPUs lineup
Intel just presented a whole new lineup of mobile CPUs. Nearly every mobile dual-core processor got a speed bump at the same price. In our first tests, the power consumption of the mainstream processors went a bit down (in idle mode) and the performance went up (due to the higher clock speed). New features are (as far as we know) not present in the new CPUs.
More Information and Benchmarks can be found on the CPU pages on Notebookcheck (see table below) and the benchmark list of laptop CPUs.
