Big on notebooks with stacks of grunt? You'll love what Intel have in store for us all, a mobile variant of their Core 2 Extreme processor! The upcoming Core 2 Extreme X7800 is said to operate at 2.6GHz with an 800MHz FSB, and will carry 4MBs of L2 cache.

 

The DailyTech have also learnt that an X7900 Core 2 Extreme mobile is on the horizon as well, that chip operating at 2.8GHz!

 

These should make for some damn awesome performing notebooks, providing the $ factor doesnt hold you back.

Core 2 Extreme X7800, the first extreme processor for notebook computer, possesses cores running at 2.6GHz, 800MHz FSB, and a 4MB L2 Cache. Besides its high-speed cores, its multiplier is also unlocked as the desktop's edition, allowing user to adjust for their need.
