Intel has just announced a new line of 64-bit dual core processors for laptop (Merom) and desktop (Conroe) computers — called “Core Duo 2”. The desktop (Conroe) processors will start shipping in July, while the laptop (Merom) versions in August.
The mobile processor series should have a T5000 line of processors that will have 2MB of L2 cache and a higher end line T7000 that will have 4MB of L2 cache. Clock speeds should match that of currently available Core Duo processors (about 1.66GHz – 2.13GHz).
