Intel 65nm 'Yonah' to ship at 2.16GHz

To be named the T2600, apparently

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Intel's upcoming 65nm, dual-core notebook chip, 'Yonah', will ship as the Pentium M T2600, computer manufacturer moles have claimed.

The sources, cited by Japanese-language website PCWatch, claim the T2600 will be clocked at a mere 2.16GHz. It will be accompanied by the T2500, T2400 and T2300 - all dual-core parts, hence the '2' -clocked at 2GHz, 1.83GHz and 1.66GHz, respectively.

Intel has already said it will offer a single-core Yonah - it will ship as the 1.66GHz Pentium M 1300.

Low-voltage Yonah's are on the cards too, model numbered the L2400 and L2300, clocked at 1.66GHz and 1.50GHz. Ultra-low Voltage Yonahs will appear as the U1400 and U1300, clocked at 1.2GHz and 1.06GHz, respectively, the sources allege.

The ULV parts are due to ship in Q2, the report states. The following quarter, Q3, Intel will ship the 2.33GHz Pentium M T2600. Q4 is scheduled for the debut of 'Merom', the 64-bit successor to Yonah.

The sources' claims go some way to clarifying reports last week that Intel was revising its Pentium M model-numbering scheme to reflect not only the dual and single core nature of Yonah, but to better reflect the power consumption of the family's various members.

The initial letters are said to work as follows: E indicates a TDP of more than 50W, T for 25-49W, L for 15-24W and U for under 14W. ®
