Socket-479

Yonah’s 2MB L2 cache is not split into two discrete 1MB caches, it is actually one whole 2MB cache that is shared by both cores

SSE3 instructions

Is this the CPU that Apple will use in the new Intel versions of the powerbook and ibook

I actually managed to read the entire review of an Intel chip. Never thought that would ever happen, but oh well...

great review by Anand. Looking forward to seeing these suckers in Apple laptops. It be da bomb!

The fact it runs at 2.0Ghz and whips the pants off the Pentium Ds running at 3+ Ghz is pretty amazing, and lower power in full vs idle for the Ds. :eek:
