Intel Quietly Ships Two Special "Yonah" CPUs

9W dual-core and 2.33GHz Yonah processors hit the streets
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
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
processor with 2MB L2 cache and a 533MHz FSB. The U2500 recently received some attention on
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
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
