2nd generation Intel Core 2 Duo processors now in stock
Date: Wednesday 13 September, 2006
Intel's new 2nd generation Core 2 Duo processors are dual-core processors, boosting increased performance, using less energy resulting in reduced heat.
The new processors come in 2 flavours :-
Desktop (LGA 775) version and
Mobile (Socket 478) version
Many Home Theatre PC motherboards use the Mobile Socket 478 processor (ie. Core 2 Duo Mobile or Core Duo Mobile) because they have the advantage of using less energy then the Desktop version which in turn means less cooling is required, via a fan, which translates into less fan noise. When Desktop motherboards use Mobile processors they refer to this as Mobile on Desktop.
