9W dual-core and 2.33GHz Yonah processors hit the streets

Despite the Woodcrest Xeon processor announced yesterday, this week Intel is expected to start shipping two new Core Duo processors.

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.

Furthermore, Intel is also discretely rolling out its Core Duo U2500 ultra-low voltage (ULV) CPU.   The U2500 is currently the only dual-core ULV product in Intel's arsenal until the 1.06GHz U7500 Merom processor launches with Santa Rosa in Q2'07.  The U2500 is a 1.2GHz Yonah processor with 2MB L2 cache and a 533MHz FSB.  The U2500 recently received some attention on DailyTech as it is the only x86 dual-core processor to ship with a 9W maximum TDP envelope.  The CPU consumes less than 1W during normal operation.  The U2500 will sell for $289 per chip in quantities of 1,000.

Intel recently announced it would spin off its XScale ARM CPU series; a processor typically dedicated to extremely low voltage applications like cell phones and PDAs.  With single-Watt dual-core processors now part in Intel's processor lineup, it may be that the company is considering x86 for these devices.

Okay, maybe not that popular then. :)

Just read from the other link in the article that this is a BGA (soldered-on) processor. Hopefully that's not still the case, otherwise that puts a major dent in any roll-your-own systems.

Although Intel's documentation says its BGA, it looks like there might be a socketed version too
