As we’ve noted in our benchmark tests, the Core 2 Extreme Mobile X9000 proved itself to be as fast as its desktop counterparts in many scenarios, all the while consuming less power as a complete system in our Dell XPS M730 notebook testbed. The new Intel mobile CPU offered its best showing under usage models like Cinebench 10, that took advantage of higher levels of multithreading, where cache coherency becomes more critical and larger amounts of L2 at the processor’s disposal can pay off handsomely…

On the other side of the fence, AMD’s Puma platform, with the promise of its powerful IGP may certainly be poised to “pounce” on the mainstream notebook segment any day now. But after being announced over a year ago in May of ’07, all of the talk, with only a hint of upcoming notebooks at this year’s Computex leaves us speculating that it all just might be too little too late for AMD yet again. We’ll just have to wait and see.
