Extreme laptop performance
Laptops built with the Intel Core 2 Extreme mobile processors are designed with mobile-optimized technologies built in.
45nm Intel® quad-core processor(QX9300)
45nm Intel® dual-core processor (X9100)
|Enabled by new hafnium-based circuitry, the processors provide dynamically increased energy efficiency and greater performance in gaming, multimedia, and multitasking on the go.|
|Power-Optimized 1066 MHz Front Side Bus (FSB)||Increased process system bus speed provides increased data bus bandwidth vs. prior generations for incredible gaming performance.|
|Larger Intel® Advanced Smart Cache||
For the QX9300, 12MB of shared L2 cache minimizes bus traffic by allowing all four cores access to the L2 memory and shared data to be accessed from the cache.
For the X9100, 6MB of shared L2 cache minimizes bus traffic by allowing the two cores access to the L2 memory and shared data to be accessed from the cache
|Intel® Dynamic Acceleration Technology(QX9300 only)||Uses headroom of idle cores by dynamically boosting frequency of active cores while maintaining the thermal envelope.|
|Support for Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU) and Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (Intel® XMP)°||Intel® XTU and Intel® XMP simplify processor and memory overclocking to optimize performance for extreme gaming.|
