Pricing and release dates for upcoming Intel products revealed

Intel's Yonah hasn't gotten quite the launch that many would have like to have seen. Core Solo and Duo based PC notebooks are few and far between these days. Apple and the smaller boutique PC notebook manufacturers have been able to launch products based on Yonah, but the heavy hitters like Dell are still lagging behind a bit. In the mean time, Intel's mobile processor roadmap is abuzz with activity. Intel will launch Core Solo Ultra Low Voltage processors on April 23rd. At that time, 1.06GHz and 1.2GHz models will be available, with a 1.06GHz ultra low voltage Core Duo U1400 to join the family Q3'06. 

An Intel Core Duo T2700 will replace the T2600 at the top of the Yonah processor family. The T2700 will debut in Q3 with a clock speed of 2.33GHz and a price of $640. The T2700 will have a short reign at the top of  Core Duo product range. Q4 will see the launch of Merom. Merom launch at speeds ranging from 1.83GHz to 2.33GHz and will feature EMT64 support -- more than a year after AMD brought Turion64 to the mobile sector.  Granted, I still have yet to see a laptop with more than 4GB of memory anyway.

Intel Mobile Performance Roadmap
Processor Brand Processor No. Core Name Clock Speed/FSB Cache Launch Date Price @ Launch
Merom Processor T7600 Merom 2.33GHz / 667MHz 4MB Q4'06 $637 (???)
Merom Processor T7400 Merom 2.16GHz / 667MHz 4MB Q4'06 $423 (???)
Merom Processor T7200 Merom 2.0GHz / 667MHz 4MB Q4'06 $294 (???)
Merom Processor T5600 Merom 1.83GHz / 667MHz 2MB Q4'06 $241 (???)
Intel Core Duo T2700 Yonah 2.33GHz / 667MHz 2MB Q3'06 $637 (???)
Intel Core Duo T2600 Yonah 2.16GHz / 667MHz 2MB Now
Intel Core Duo T2300E Yonah 1.66GHz / 667MHz 2MB Q2'06 $209 (05/28)
Intel Core Solo T1400 Yonah 1.83GHz / 667MHz 2MB Q2'06 $209 (05/28)
Intel Core Duo LV L2400 Yonah 1.66GHz / 667MHz 2MB Now
Intel Core Duo LV L2300 Yonah 1.50GHz / 667MHz 2MB Now
Intel Core Duo ULV U2500 Yonah 1.06GHz / 533MHz 2MB Q3'06 $289 (???)
Intel Core Solo ULV U1400 Yonah 1.20GHz / 533MHz 2MB Q2'06 $262 (04/16)
Intel Core Solo ULV U1300 Yonah 1.06MHz / 533MHz 2MB Q2'06 $241 (04/16)

Yonah based Celeron processors are on the way for the second quarter ranging in speed from 1.46GHz to 1.73GHz. The chips will still feature 1MB of L2 cache and will come will feature a 533MHz FSB. 

Intel Mobile Value Roadmap
Processor Brand Processor No. Core Name Clock Speed/FSB Cache Price @ Launch
Intel Celeron M 430 Yonah 1.73GHz/533MHz 1MB $134 (04/16)
Intel Celeron M 420 Yonah 1.60GHz/533MHz 1MB $107 (04/16)
Intel Celeron M 410 Yonah 1.46GHz/533MHz 1MB $86 (05/28)
Intel Celeron M ULV 423 Yonah 1.06GHz/533MHz 1MB $161 (04/16)

Intel expects to ramp up the production of dual-core mobile processors thoughout 2006 (see image, right). In Q1 of 2006, dual core processors are expected to make up just over 25% of Intel's total mobile processor shipments. By Q4, that product mix will do a complete 180 with dual core processors making up just over 80% of Intel's total mobile processor shipments.

Looks like that link solidifies the "slow start." Only small vendors are getting out any product...and small amounts of product at that. The big guys are still looking volume:

quote:
Intel formally unveiled the new Core Duo processor at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month. Acer and Sony have started shipping a few notebooks that feature the dual-core processor, formerly known by its Yonah code name. [b]But Gateway, Hewlett-Packard, Apple Computer, Lenovo and Dell are still waiting to release their Core Duo notebooks, even though they have announced the specifications and pricing.[/b]

I guess you have comprehension problems if you still think Intel is to blame for the "slow start" of Core Duo products.

The article clearly states that Core Duo was ahead of schedule. It was the larger companies such as Dell with longer EVT/DVT/PVT cycles which could not adapt to the tightened schedule. Yonah was originally targeted for March/April.

Combine that with the fact Intel shipped 1M Yonah processors in the first three weeks after intro. Apple also had Yonah iMac desktops ready on day-one. If Intel and Apple were on their "honeymoon" as so many suggested, Apple would have had Core Duo MacBooks on day-one as well. Clearly, that was not the case. Intel had the processors ready -- it was a first-come-first-serve arrangement. Apple recycled the iMac design and hence could ship first. Their notebook design, like Dell, HP and Gateway, had to wait until February since they were caught off guard by Intel's 65nm success.

"It's not microsoft's fault XBox 360 is shipping in low volume, it's the people who manufacturer xbox 360"

Please. give me a break. I heard of core duo 2 months ago. Where can you buy a core duo?

Nice strawman.

Guess you've never heard of Dell, Toshiba, or Sony either.

I'm surprised you have Internet access in that cave of yours.

You forgot to read the rest of that article (it was from Jan 27th):
"Comparable notebooks from Dell and Gateway won't ship until the first week of February, based on those companies' Web sites, while Apple's MacBook Pro won't appear in Apple stores until the second week of February, according to a sales representative at the company's San Francisco store. HP is bringing up the rear, with its Core Duo notebook not scheduled to ship until Feb. 24."

So out of those, only hp isn't shipping yet.
