Intel has made no secret of the fact that, soon, its Nehalem architecture will reach notebooks in the form of quad-core Clarksfield processors. We even got to see a running Clarksfield-based notebook at Computex in June.
The chipmaker hasn't revealed many details yet, but a laptop maker seems to have beaten it to the punch somewhat. Eurocom has eagerly announced two upcoming Clarksfield laptops, and its press release includes a breakdown of the upcoming mobile quad-core CPUs:
- Intel Core i7-920XE Extreme Processor (Clarksfield); 2.0GHz, 8MB L3 cache; 55W TDP.
- Intel Core i7-820QM Processor (Clarksfield); 1.73GHz, 8[MB] L3 cache; 45W TDP.
- Intel Core i7 i7-720QM Processor (Clarksfield); 1.60GHz 6MB L3 cache, 45W TDP
These processors will show up in two future Eurocom laptops: the 15.6" W860CU Cougar and the 17.3" W870CU Cheetah. Both of these should be high-powered desktop-replacement-type systems, and they'll become available in "early October." The latter's spec sheet mentions GeForce GTX 280M graphics, up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM, three 500GB hard drives, a Blu-ray combo drive, and a 1.5-hour battery.
Eurocom's W870CU Cheetah will measure a hefty 16.5" x 11.2" x 1.6-1.9" and weigh in at 8.8 lbs. The Cougar should be a little more slender, with a smaller footprint, 1.7" thickness, and 7.3-lb weight. See the gallery below for images of the W870CU.
