Intel has begun shipping Core Duo T2700 series (2.33 GHz), the company's latest and greatest "Yonah" derived CPU (via DailyTech). It is currently expected that this will be the last Core Duo release before the mobile Core 2 Duo, aka "Merom" is released in August.

It is unknown whether Apple is planning to upgrade its line to accomodate the T2700 at this time. Currently, Apple's top of the line Intel processor offering is the 2.16 GHz Core Duo (T2600) in the 15" and 17" MacBook Pros.

I don't think they will updated the MB or the MBP line up. I think we were lucky the last time when they but the 1.8 to a 2.0, due to the close release. I see no reason for this.

I see every reason for it. Because I'd pay more for a 2.33 and who (as a business) doesn't want more cash coming in?

They might do it but if they were to do so, it would have to be announced within the next couple of weeks. Beyond that, there wouldn't be much point, depending on the numbers of these chips that would initially be available because people would only send them back as and when the Meroms are released.

Can't wait for the quad core chips and the new MacPro's. I love my iMac, but I want a bigger monitor for work. I hope they update the Cinema displays too and add integrated iSight.

Oh wow. 34Mhz gain in speed.
Was this a typo? It is actually a 167MHz increase (7.7%) over the T2600 and a 333MHz increase (16.7%) over the T2500.

With the shift going to Merom in the MBP and iMac,the Conroe in the upcoming MacPro and the Woody in the XServe I can see the Mini getting bumped up in the next couple of weeks.

Wow. Remember the days when a 170MHz speed bump would have actually been newsworthy, or evolutionary?

Remember the days when chips ran at less than 170 MHz, period? They weren't that long ago...

Even if apple did begin using these chips, it would probably be a quiet upgrade, kinda like the Macbook Pro upgrade when the Macbooks came out.

Not far from Boston, MA.
I smell another stealth upgrade. Frequent stealth upgrades are a side benefit of going with Intel, and I don't see why Apple wouldn't continue to take advantage of these.

Here's something Apple users aren't used to....

We are used to chipset upgrades once a year and only ususaly 50-200 mhz max. Now it seems like Intel is ripping these things out almost too fast. I think Apple should sit on upgrading any of the line until there is another upgrade.

The pro lines have taken a beating because of IBM and their snail mail approach. If Apple could do a 6-9 month cycle similar to what the iBooks used to be but on all their lines, I think you will see some serious improvement in Apple's image.

I agree, it's a no brainer.

If I wasn't waiting for Merom, I would want a T2700.

BTO Option

They will quietly add the T2700 as a Build-To-Order option on the MBP similar to the way the T2600 has been on the 15"

No kidding, it wasn't too long ago that our FSBs ran slower than 170 MHz.
