Samsung pre-announces 2.33GHz Intel Core Duo T2700

Whoops - dual-core mobile chip not due 'til Q3

Samsung has announced Intel's Core Duo T2700 mobile processor before the chip giant has even said it will offer such a part. The as-yet-unlaunched 65nm dual-core CPU is set to appear in the notebook maker's upcoming Q35 laptop, as we were first to report earlier today.

Samsung showed the Q35 off in South Korea this week, but the machine is already listed on the company's UK website. There it claims the laptop will ship with a 2.33GHz T2700 Core Duo.

Intel's Core Duo range currently runs to the 2.16GHz T2600. The chip giant's roadmap indicates the part isn't due to ship until Q3 - early on, given the July UK release dates we're hearing for the Q35. The current Core Duo line is expected to undergo a round of price cuts in advance of the T2700's debut. ®
