Intel Core 2 Duo ULV for UMPCs

Intel_core2duoTwo new processors destined for UMPCs and other devices were made official today and will already be available in Gateway’s E-100M non-handtop next month.

The 1.06Ghz U7500 and 1.2GHz U7600 Core 2 Duo chips are said to consume less than a third of the power of typical laptops running at full speed, which means (among other things) improved battery life. Both chips are part of the Napa platform, will be compatible (after slight modification) with Santa Rosa when it’s released later this year, and will eventually phase out the Core Duo U2500.

Now, normally CPU news is of very little interest (not to mention completely Greek) to me, but it made me think of the Samsung Q1 Ultra and all the speculation about what’s inside it. Based on how many times I’ve seen "800MHz" cited, I think the Core 2 Duo ULV can be stricken from the list of best guesses.
