Notebook Italia spills the beans on a slew of new "Penryn" notebooks

Intel's 45nm Penryn-based desktop and server processors were released to an eager audience a few months ago. January 6 is the big day for Intel's Penryn-based notebook processors and it appears that the Santa Clara-based company won't disappoint.

As reported by DailyTech in early December, the Penryn notebooks to be launched in January will consist of the Core 2 Duo T8100, T8300, T9300, T9500 and Core 2 Xtreme X9000. Frequencies for the processor range from 2.1GHz on the T8100 on up to 2.8GHz on the X9000.

Even though Intel's official announcement won't come until January's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), notebook manufacturers are already leaking details for their upcoming Penryn-based notebooks. Notebook Italia has scored information on new Penryn notebooks from Acer, Fujitsu and Sony.

Acer will launch no less than eight new Penryn-based notebooks in January ranging from the 12.1" Aspire 2920 with a Core 2 Duo T8300 processor and 320GB HDD to the massive 20.1" Aspire 9920G with a WXSGA+ screen resolution, NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT GPU, Core 2 Duo T8100 processor and 500GB of storage space (250GB x 2). Acer also has a full range of notebooks in between with screen sizes of 14.1", 15.4" and 17.1".

Fujitsu has two new Penryn notebooks on deck. The first is the Amilo Pi 2550 which features a Core 2 Duo T8300 processor, 2GB of DDR2 memory, 15.4" WXGA screen, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400 GPU and a 240GB HDD. The second notebook is the Amilo Xi 2428 which ups the ante with a Core 2 Duo T9300, 2GB of DDR2 memory, 15.4" WXGA screen, NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS GPU and a 250GB HDD.

Not to be left out, Sony is unleashing five new VAIO models ranging from the 13.3" VAIO SZ71XN/C to the 17.1" VAIO AR61ZU. The VAIO SZ71XN/C comes up to bat with a T8100 processor, WXGA screen resolution, Intel GMA X3100 integrated graphics and a 200GB HDD. The VAIO AR61ZU commands your attention with a T8300 graphics processor, 3GB of DDR2 memory, WUXGA screen resolution, NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processor, 500GB of storage space (250GB x 2) and a Blu-ray/DL DVD burner.

The above notebooks are just the first wave of new Penryn-announcements. Expect a bevy of new announcements at the start of CES from manufacturers including HP/Compaq, Dell and Asus.
