Ultra-Mobile Core 2 Duo’s in the works
The U7600 and U7500 is clocked at 1.2Ghz and 1.06Ghz. Running on 533Mhz FSB, half of its bigger desktop brothers gives it a power consumption of 10w (they really mean Ultra-Mobile). The new chips also spot 2MB of level two cache.
Gateway will be among the first OEMs to offer one of these low-watt Core 2 Duo processors in an ultraportable notebook. Starting May 3, Gateway customers will be able to order an E-100M ultraportable with Intel’s U7600, according to Gateway officials.
