Intel prepping 1.46GHz ultra-low voltage Core i7-680UM

  1. Recent leaks suggest that along with updating its ultra-low voltage mobile processors in the third quarter, Intel will add at least one more ultrathin notebook chip in the fourth quarter. The company recently delayed its CULV refresh, in part because of Acer's decision to reject the power-sipping chips in favor of Calpella-series processors for its TimelineX laptops.

    They really need to find a way to make chips go faster in general. My p4 was stock at 3.4. I know the architecture is more important but still. 1.4GHz!

    GHZ isn't everything. Look at a 5GHZ pentium 4 against a 3GHZ Core i7.

    Wow, seriously? that 1.4ghz will burn toast over the 3.4 ghz p4. If you havnt looked around there are several cpu's in the 3.2-3.4 ghz range today. And dont spout nonsense about the cost either, because 5 years ago a pentium D EE would cost 5-600 dollars for some versions that ran at 3.4Ghz+

    Lol more like "Ultra-Slow" amirite?

  6. its called a LOW VOLTAGE processor. This processor can be turbo boosted to 2.5 GHz, is hyper threaded with 4 virtual cores, and combines integrated graphics, all into an 18w TDP! 1.4 GHz is fast enough for most everyday tasks that a portable laptop will have to take anyways. Stop comparing it to $500 desktop processors with TDP's of 100 W for the processor alone.
