As we draw closer to the moment everyone is waiting for (Conroe - due for launch on July 27), Intel have just quietly introduced two new CPUs based on their Yonah core for mobile platforms. The new Core Duo T2600 nor T2700 CPUs operate at 2.16GHz and 2.33GHz respectively, and according to the DailyTech they should be found in high-end notebooks very soon now.
The new Core Duo T2700 is a 2.33GHz dual-core 65nm Yonah-based CPU, specifically targeted for high end notebooks and desktop replacement (DTR) devices. The processor is already shipping at some retail outlets, and should start showing up in high-end notebooks very soon. The previous high end model, the 2.16GHz T2600, was reduced to $423 on June 4th, but neither the T2600 nor T2700 will receive another discount until the Merom launch later this year. The T2700 will sell for $637 in quantities of 1,000.
