Although the shift to notebook computer is the market's trend, extreme products are still only remaining on the desktop due to size factor and power consideration. Yet, this tradition would be broken in the near future, as Intel just announced its first extreme edition's processor for notebook computer.
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.
