Intel quad core “Extreme” notebook chips loom

IF ONE CPU core isn’t enough for you, Intel is readying a notebook chip called the Core 2 Extreme QX9300 in Q3, said Digitimes.

Anything with the word Extreme in it makes us nervous – whether it be Extreme Cold, Extreme Heat, or Extreme Ice Cream.

Digitimes reckons the chip will clock at 2.53GHz, have 12MB of cache memory and will cost a hefty $1,000 plus, if you buy more than a thousand.♦
