Seven Arrandale CPUs might launch in early 2010

We've been talking a lot about Clarkdale lately, but we shouldn't forget about its laptop-bound cousin. According to a new DigiTimes report, Arrandale will debut in the same time frame, the first quarter of 2010, in seven different flavors.

Arrandale processors will presumably find their way into an updated version of the Calpella platform, whose first iteration should appear this fall with 45nm, quad-core Clarksfield processors. Recent whispers from the rumor mill suggest Clarksfield parts will top out at a base speed of 2GHz with relatively large power envelopes (45-55W). Arrandale, being a 32nm dual-core design, should draw less power.

DigiTimes writes that the initial Arrandale lineup will include three 35W parts clocked from 2.4GHz to 2.66GHz with prices of $225-332. We should also see two low-voltage derivatives clocked at 2 and 2.13GHz, plus two ultra-low-voltage models running at 1.06 and 1.2GHz. The 1.06GHz offering will cost $278, but Intel will reportedly price the other three in the $300-332 range.

Check out DigiTimes' piece for a complete list of prices and clock speeds—all unofficial, of course, since the site got its information from "sources at notebook makers."
