First Intel Arrandale processors due January 3rd; Bound for Apple MacBook Pro models?

“Fudzilla claims that Intel is planning on launching three Arrandale-based processors on January 3rd, 2010,” Arnold Kim reports for Mac Rumors.

“These Arrandale processors are based on the advanced Nehalem architecture first introduced into desktop Macs earlier this year, and should represent a significant performance improvement over the Core 2 Duo processors that are currently found in Apple’s MacBook Pros,” Kim reports.

MacDailyNews Note: Intel’s “Arrandale” line is marketed as mobile Intel Core i3, i5 and i7.

Kim reports, “While Fudzilla describes their TDP (thermal design power) of 35W as ‘not so attractive,’ it matches up with the current high-end processors used in the MacBook Pro.”
