"Intel plans to release its X9000 2.8GHz Extreme Edition mobile processor in mid February and you should get it in selected notebooks in late February or March.
The new CPU is a Penryn dual core generation manufactured at 45nm marchitecture and has an impressive 6MB of cache memory. It also uses FSB 800 bus and a uFCPGA8 socket and it is set to be available from February to April and then Intel will rethink should it go even faster and simply continue with this quite fast part.
This is going to be the fastest mobile chip and it will definitely fill the gap for desktop replacement gamers who will finally get a very fast CPU. Intel launched its first Core 2 Extreme mobile CPU in August last year and this is simply a faster clocked addition to this generation."
