“Intel will up the ante again on January 6, 2008 with its new 45nm Penryn-based Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme dual core processors,” Brandon Hill blogs for DailyTech.
“It’s highly plausible that the chips could make their first appearance at CES 2008 (January 7, 2008) with further unveils at MacWorld 2008 in Apple’s oft-rumored tablet, revamped MacBook Pros or refreshed iMac desktops,” Hill reports.
“Apple’s current MacBook Pro makes use of the Core 2 Duo T7500, T7700 and T7800 65nm Merom processors which will be phased out in favor of the new [Penryn] T8300, T9300 and T9500. Likewise, the current iMac uses Core 2 Duo T7250, T7700 and Core 2 Extreme X7900 processors which are being replaced by the [Penryn] T8100, T9300 and X9000,” Hill reports.
