First Core 2 Extreme CPU

Through the test of an upcoming, prototype Asus G2S laptop, an Italian website has confirmed the existence of the first mobile Core 2 Extreme processor. Codenamed the Merom XE, and more consistently labelled as the X7800, its two cores are clocked at 2.6GHz, with a Santa Rosa-level (800MHz) front-side bus and 4MB of Level 2 cache.

Most significantly, the CPU is said to be very friendly to overclocking; it can be pushed to 2.8 or even 3.0 GHz with an appropriate software utility. Alternately, users can reduce power consumption to as low as 27W, or return it to a normal 44W. Previous leaks have suggested that the 7800 will be out by the end of July at a price of $851.
