Aside from introducing the Core 2 Duo E6550, E6750, and E6850 processors and the Core 2 Extreme QX6850 quad-core processor, Intel has today announced the first-ever Core 2 Extreme processor that is targeted for mobile laptops. This new mobile processor is dual-core, but next year Intel hopes to introduce quad-core processors for consumer notebooks that will be battery friendly. The mobile Intel Core 2 Extreme X7800 processor is clocked at 2.6GHz, but Intel has even unlocked the over-speed protection so that OEM manufacturers have the ability to overclock this mobile processor.

We're working on obtaining these new Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors released today for testing at Phoronix under Linux and Solaris. The Intel Extreme X7800 press release can be read here. You can read recent processor reviews at Phoronix and discuss these new solutions in the Phoronix Forums.
