    Default Intel Roadmap Leaked: 2.83 GHz MBP This Fall?


    Engadget is reporting on a leaked Intel document showing new Core i5 and Core i7 processors in the third quarter of this year, prompting hopes that the MacBook Pro line will get a second speed bump in 2010. The new chips range up to a 2.8 GHz Core i7, which will run at a blazing 3.46 GHz with Turbo Boost. Since the MacBook Pro line was refreshed in April with Core i5 and i7 processors, it'd be reasonable to expect build-to-order options rather than new models.

    The roadmap show's Intel's continued focus on Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) chip designs. In addition to the high-end 35W designs, the roadmap shows new Consumer-grade Ultra Low Voltage designs, including a 1.33GHz Core i5 that will ramp to 2.13GHz using Turbo Boost 1.46 GHz Core i7 that will turbo to 2.53GHz and a 25W 2.26GHz Core i7.

    Further down the road, Intel's new 32nm "Huron River" platform will be released in the first quarter of 2011. The new CPU family will pack WiMAX and Bluetooth onto the same die, along with WiDi. Intel's new wireless graphics technology, introduced in January, allows PCs to stream HD video direct to interface boxes or (as yet unreleased) compatible TVs. In addition, the Huron River line will support new Zero Power ODD technology, which will boost battery life by enabling an optical drive power savings mode, parking Blu-Ray or DVD drives when not in use.

    As when Apple quietly added new 3.33GHz quad-core Intel Xeon processors as options to the Mac Pro on its website at the end of last year, it's possible that the speed bump will be released without fanfare.

    The new chips were first tipped when Engadget noted that the Dell website featured Core i7-740QM and 840QM options, since removed.

    How does continued progress and speed updates translate into "Intel Sucks"? Macs have gotten speed upgrades at least once.. sometimes twice a year so it should be expected that within a few months of purchasing you will have an "old" model.

    My MBP definitely needs to be sold for this!
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    I'll just bring it to tekserve or apple and pay to upgrade the chip if everything else is the same.

    It still amazes me how fast our technology is growing, my first computer was a PackardBell, it had a 75MHz intel pentium chip, 8MB memory, 1MB of video memory - WOW

    Lol, Apple should sue intel for "irreparably damaging" its sales goals for the new Macbook Pros. Who would be foolish enough to buy one now after hearing this news?
