Rumor has it that Intel is preparing a pair of new ultimate CPUs for laptops in their Core 2 Extreme Edition range of parts. The first part is said to be aimed at a Q2/Q3 arrival with the second CPU aimed at Q4 of this year.

Taiwanese moles inside a mainboard manufacturer claim that the CPUs are code named Merom XE and will both be 65nm parts with 4MB shared L2 cache and 800 MHz FSB. The first chip is Core 2 Extreme X7800 and is to be clocked at 2.6 GHz.The second and faster part is the Core 2 Extreme X7900 which will be a 2.8 GHz clock. The X7800 is supposed to carry a price of $795 when it launches with pricing for the X7900 unknown. A few hundred bucks more than the X7800 would be a good guess I expect. Via Reg Hardware.
