2007 Mobile Roadmap

What will the future hold for Core 2 Duo?  The table below shows you the lineup by Q2 of next year:

 CPU Clock Speed FSB L2 Cache

Intel Core 2 Duo T7700

2.40GHz

800MHz

4MB

Intel Core 2 Duo T7600

2.33GHz

667MHz

4MB

Intel Core 2 Duo T7500

2.20GHz

800MHz

4MB

Intel Core 2 Duo T7400

2.16GHz

667MHz

4MB

Intel Core 2 Duo T7300

2.00GHz

800MHz

4MB

Intel Core 2 Duo T7200

2.00GHz

667MHz

Intel Core 2 Duo L7500

1.60GHz

800MHz

4MB

Intel Core 2 Duo L7400

1.50GHz

667MHz

4MB

Intel Core 2 Duo L7300

1.40GHz

800MHz

4MB

Intel Core 2 Duo L7200

1.33GHz

667MHz

4MB

Intel Core 2 Duo U7500

1.06GHz

533MHz

2MB

*Note: These CPUs lack Intel Virtualization Technology (VT) support)

By the end of this year you can expect a T5500 running at 1.66GHz for $209, but the rest of the new models won't appear until next year.  In Q1 2007 Intel will introduce the first Low Voltage Core 2 Duo processors, the L7400 and L7200 at 1.5GHz and 1.33GHz respectively.  In Q2 2007, Intel will introduce all of the 800MHz FSB Core 2 Duo parts, as well as the Ultra Low Voltage Core 2 Duo U7500. 

The difference between the T5500P and the T5500 is that the former is a Socket-P part (Santa Rosa platform), while the latter is Socket-M (Napa platform).

    It was interesting to compare the numbers in this review with the previous Core 2 Duo desktop review where 2MB vs 4MB L2 cache was examined (although at 1,83GHz/1066)

    Its not a perfect comparison but from what I can gather, there are significant improvements performance wise coming from the core, even in the non-FP/SSE related benchmarks. A favorite argument among some people is that the extra cache makes all the difference, I hope this will shut them up! (tho I really doubt it)


    Correct. Lots of the benchmarks show 10% advantage for Core 2 Duo over Core Duo. The only 10% advantage 4MB L2 over 2MB L2 is in a single app.

    Video makes ALL the difference in the world. Reply

    I'm in the market for a mini PC to do video trancode, and I was considering the MEROM chip to compare to YONAH...

    ...in the end, given the right graphic card ( add ATI X1400 series or higher here ) with hardware embedded transcode features, i guess the YONAH fits my bill just right.

    And i get to pay 100$ or 200$ less than the same computer with a MEROM which could not offer me better on the video side...

    What do you think ?

    I would get the best video you can get with the cash saved from getting the Memron. Reply

    Whats the difference between the Intel Core Duo T2300E* and the Intel Core Duo T2300E?

    I see a difference in price, but not specs. The page in the article does not address the asterisk...

    The asterisk means that the CPU lacks support for Intel Virtualization Technology (VT). I had the note on Page 3 but I forgot to include it on Page 2 :) Thanks for the heads up :)

    Take care,
