A leaked Intel roadmap has surfaced on Engadget, and it turns out that the company will release a speed bumped Core i7 processor later this year. As Macrumors reports:
“The upcoming Core i7-640M will run at a base frequency of 2.8GHz with “turbo boost” speeds up to 3.46GHz. This new processor draws the same power as the current MacBook Pro processors so should be a natural upgrade for Apple.”
Indeed it’s very likely that Apple will implement these new processors in the new Macbooks sometime this fall or next year, but you can bet that the next Macbook line won’t be just about speed bumping. Also, we don’t think we’ll be hearing anything about desktop computers at the upcoming WWDC. Remember, it’s about the iPhone OS platform.
