Intel ships top-of-the-line Core Duo

'Yonah's last fling before 'Merom'

Intel has added the 2.33GHz Core Duo T2700 mobile microprocessor to its list of available CPUs after quietly launching the part this month.

The 'Yonah' processor consumes 31W of power and operates over a 667MHz frontside bus. It's almost certainly the last Core Duo to be released - 'Merom', the next-generation architecture mobile chip due to ship as the Core 2 Duo, is scheduled to ship in August.

Intel has also shipped the Core Solo T1400, a single-core 1.83GHz chip that consumes 27W. Like the T2700, it has 2MB of L2 cache on board. And we can add the ultra-low voltage Core Duo U2500 - 1.2GHz, 533MHz FSB, 2MB L2, 9W. All these chips are 65nm parts.

We're still waiting for the anticipated 1.83GHz low-voltage Core Duo L2500 too. ®
