Yonah is expected to be replaced quickly


Recommended Posts

Looks like the Yonah (Core Duo/Solo) is a short lived CPU.

Intel today announced the release of Intel Core 2 Duo processor, codename Conroe and Merom, for desktop and mobile platform. While Conroe is already available today, Merom is shipping in August.

According to Vincent Lee, Intel?s Regional Sales Manager of South China, the company has plan no plan on any price cut to Yonah, the prices for both Merom and Yonah at the same speed are the same. As the stocking level of Yonah is kept at an acceptable level, it?s no point to update its price for clean up, he explained. In addition, since Merom also support the existing platform of Yonah, without any change in design to other related hardware, he expected Merom can replace Yonah in a very short time. On the other hand, Sources form NB market indicate that there are some special edition of Core Duo processor to the OEM market, where the price is set lower than the standard ones. Core 2 Duo is expected to ship more than 50% in mobile platform.

But with new CPU's out in August, buying a lapotp has never looked so good :)
