Intel's Core 2 Extreme X7800 comes multiplier unlocked

DailyTech first brought you news of Intel's range-topping Core 2 Extreme X7800 processor in late January. The Merom-based processor is clocked at 2.6GHz, has an 800MHz FSB and features an alphabet soup of technologies including VT, EIST and EM64T.

Intel officially announced the Core 2 Extreme X7800 yesterday. This marks the first time that the "Extreme" nomenclature has made its way over to Intel's mobile processors.

And although battery life and heat are typical concerns of notebook users, the new Core 2 Extreme X7800 will find its way into desktop replacement notebooks that will likely be tethered to a wall outlet 24-7. As a result, Intel has unlocked the multiplier on the processor. So those who have no qualms about overclocking a mobile processor are now free to do so.

According to Engadget, a Belgian site has already pushed a Core 2 Extreme X7800 to 3.0GHz using an Asus G2S host machine.

The overclocking goodness will cost you, however. The processor will be priced at $851 in quantities of 1,000 when it hits the streets in the coming weeks.

Sweet a lap warmer and a egg cooker all in one. Seems my laptop is 18 inches thick because I have a big typhoon cooling my processor. Don't worry though, this will help me watch movies faster on the plane ride.

This is pointless, why overclock a laptop?
