It is also now clear that the first quad-core mobile processor, the Core 2 Extreme QX9300, will likely launch in September at a clock speed of 2.53GHz and be priced at just over $1,000. This chip will also boast a massive 12MB cache and have a Thermal Design Power (TDP or thermal envelope) of 45 watts, rivaling desktop quad-core processors.

So now we can all drool at the prospect of a quad-core Mini sometime in 2009... Smile

I'm still waiting for the G5 to find its way into a laptop. Wink

It will be interesting to see what temps these suckers run at. I just built a gaming/Linux box with a Q6600 and it runs fairly warm.

I wouldn't be surprised if the top of the range MacBook Pro is sporting a quad core chip by early next year.
