With the 2007 Games Convention now underway in Germany, Intel saw this as the perfect opportunity to unveil their long-awaited Core 2 Extreme X7900 processor from the event today.

 

The X7900 is a mobile processor for notebooks which runs at a clockspeed of 2.8GHz and contains 4MB of L2 cache running off an 800MHz FSB. Mobile-specific power-saving features are also embedded into the design of the chip.

 

The Inquirer have more details on it here folks.

 


MOBILE GAMING IS the next big thing for hardware and software manufacturers. They hope. Just like hawks, companies are looking for parts of the market or new markets where they can spread their wings, and it seems that mobile gaming segment is finally coming to life.
Intel opened GC Press Day with a press conference, announcing the Core 2 Extreme X7900. This processor relies on the old 65 nanometre die codenamed Merom, but with updated specs. Unlike most of the models, X7900 gets to its 2.8GHz clock using the 800 MHz FSB, and 667 MHz should become thing of the past. Thermal envelope of 45W was held with this part as well, since it eats up 44W of current.
