Intel Corp. recently began to list its forthcoming mobile Core Solo and Core Duo chips code-named Yonah in its processor spec finder database. The listing confirms that the company is about to formally unveil the worldâ€™s first dual-core mobile processors during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada in early January, 2006.
At press time official specifications could not be retrieved.
Intel Core processors â€“ which will be available in single-core and dual-core flavours â€“ represent a yet another derivative of the so-called Banias architecture, which inherits many peculiarities of the P6 architecture. The Core Duo will have two processing engines and will be produced using 65nm process technology late this year with commercial availability scheduled for Q1 2006. The target clock-rate for Core processors is 2.17GHz, while the chipâ€™s processor system bus will clock at 667MHz.
