Today at the IDF show, Intel announced the coming of a new processor built off of the Nehalem architecture and meant for high-end, high-speed laptops like the Qosmio X500. They claim this new i7 mobile processor is their fastest laptop processor ever, bringing four cores of processing power to a portable platform.

Several new features are available with the i7, including Intel's new Turbo Boost technology and Hyper-Threading Technology. Turbo Boost allows your computer to detect when it has excess power and push the processors harder in order to take advantage of the glut. Hyper-Threading technology is supposed to deliver "thread-level parallelism on each processor resulting in more efficient use of processor resources..."

That all sounds groovy to me. The new i7 also has two-channel DDR3 1333 MHz memory support with full PCI Express 2.0 graphics. We've already seen one new machine announced with this processor, and more are sure to rush out before this year's holiday season hits in earnest.
