Notebook users will be introduced to Intel's high-end brand

Intel expects to introduce its high-end Core 2 Extreme branding to notebooks in Q3’2007 according to the latest roadmap. The upcoming Core 2 Extreme X7800 uses the same Merom core used by the Core 2 Duo mobile family of processors. Intel’s Core 2 Extreme X7800 will arrive clocked at 2.6 GHz, operate on an 800 MHz front-side bus and feature 4MB of L2 cache like the rest of the Core 2 Duo family. Intel technologies such as VT, EIST, EM64T and XD/NX bit are supported, though Intel has removed support for Intel Dynamic Acceleration.

The Core 2 Extreme X7800 for mobile will remain at the top of Intel’s chain of mobile processors until the upcoming Core 2 Extreme X7900 dethrones it in Q4’2007. This new model clocks at a high 2.8 GHz while retaining the same feature-set as the Core 2 Extreme X7800. These processors are only available for socket P only, unlike the Core 2 Duo product family which features socket P and BGA packaged chips.

Joining the Core 2 Extreme X7900 in Q4’2007 is two new Core 2 Duo processors. As the Core 2 Extreme X7900 takes the flagship spot, Intel will release the Core 2 Duo T7800. The Core 2 Duo T7800 is identical to the Core 2 Extreme X7800, with the addition of Intel Dynamic Acceleration support. On the mainstream side of things, Intel will release the Core 2 Duo T7250 in Q4’2007 as well. This model is similar to the current Core 2 Duo T7300 except the L2 cache is halved to 2MB. The 2.0 GHz clock speed and 800 MHz front-side bus is identical to the Core 2 Duo T7300.

Expect Intel to pull the wraps off of its Core 2 Duo Extreme X7800 for notebooks in Q3’2007 with a $795 per-unit in 1,000-unit quantities price tag.

CPUs = GPUs?

Anyone else starting to think that the latest CPU line-ups from both AMD and Intel are starting to get as confusing as GPU lineupes?

I mean for Intel we got the following for the regular user (to my knowledge):

quote:
Core 2 Quad
Core 2 Duo E6---
Core 2 Duo E4---
Core 2 Solo
Pentium E----
Celeron


And god knows between the different AMD cores that are numbered numbered the same (3800+ as the best example with three different cores).

I already gave up trying to keep track of the performance/price/etc of the GPU market, but the CPU market is following closely behind.

Agreed...

thats the same same thing I am beginning to see. They need to make the naming a little easier so i don't have to pull out a chart to see what processors the best.

Great observation. I've actually had people inside AMD and Intel both comment on this too.

Personally, I don't know why a lot of these companies don't follow the way cars are branded/named -- especially in the GPU market where there really are only a couple ASICs and everything else is just partner branding. For example, we could have the 2007 GeForce Hydrogen GPU, then the 2008, etc etc.

But then again I just write about this stuff. I'm sure there's good reasons some of this stuff is named the way it is.
