Intel preps mobile processors for higher clock speeds

Santa Clara (CA) – Intel is transitioning seven small-package Core 2 Duo CPUs as well as one Celeron M processor to new steppings, which will include “speed enhancements” for the Montevina notebook platform and lay the foundation for a higher clock speed, the company said.

The Core 2 Duo SL9300 (1.60 GHz), SL9400 (1.86 GHz), SP9300 (2.26 GHz) and SP9400 (2.40 GHz) will be moved from a C-0 stepping to E-0, while the Celeron M ULV 723 (1.2 GHz), Core 2 Solo SU3300 (1.20 GHz, single-core), Core 2 Duo SU9300 (1.20 GHz), and SU9400 (1.40 GHz) will switch from M-0 to R-0.

The effect of both stepping changes is the same – there are speed path improvements, which will enable higher frequency models, according to Intel. There are no electrical, mechanical or thermal changes.With the exception of the Celeron M model, the conversion affects only small package processors: SP models that focus on performance, SL version that have a greater focus on energy efficiency as well as SU versions that solely focus on energy efficiency. Intel defines SP processors as small-package CPUs with a thermal envelope of 20-29 watts, SL processors with 12-19 watts and SU processors with less than 12 watts.

We can’t really remember a time when Intel’s processor descriptions were as confusing as they are today, so here is a quick reminder what those cryptic prefixes mean:

Intel told its customers that samples of the new processors will be available by December 8 of this year. Volume shipments are set to begin on or after March 2 of next year. The company said that there will not be any form, fit and function changes between the stepping conversions, however, system

chrome got its own features like drag and drop tabs and the most important feature is its start up time.that really great and 150% increase in Javascript performance brings your browser act smart in case of not responding and script execution cases.
see below image for javascript performance

coming to the speed for browsing there is another browser which nearly reach chrome's speed.its opera 10 final
here is the comparison chart

Tab loading speed

overall java script  speed

but chrome has got no addons like firefox or flock.using firefox and flock u can browse and also have lot of benifits using 1000's of addons.
so i suggest my readers to use chrome while they want to read blogs and online books or checking mails and navigating through network
if  u want to blog or do any multitask network related work while browsing  internet i suggest u to use Firefox or flock.
soon am going to come with a new post on browser flock.that post includes how to flock effectively and use its feautures effectively.
