    Yours should be a Penryn. It's successor is Clarksfield, which is based on the Nehalem microarchitecture. However, the only Macs that currently use Nehalem processors are the Mac Pro and the Xserves.

    Assuming its the one in your signature, its Penryn, a P8700 Core 2 Duo 3MB L2 Cache 1066MHz FSB, 9.5 multiplier. You need an application like netkas' CPU-X or CPU-Z in Windows XP/Vista/7.
    Penryn is the codename given to the processor, not the chipset.
