Intel Quietly Launches First Core 2 Duo ULV Processors

Intel has added two ultra low voltage Core 2 Duo processors to its product portfolio. The new 1.06GHz U7500 and the 1.2GHz U7600 models, are based on the Merom core with 533MHz FSB and 2MB L2 cache. Both CPUs will be targeting mini notebooks, tablet PCs and ultra-portable notebooks. The U7500 and U7600 are introduced as part of the currently shipping "Napa refresh" platform, but will also be available for the upcoming Santa Rosa platform with a slight change in pinout. The new Merom ULV CPUs will be replacing the Core Duo U2500 processor over the coming months. One of the first manufacturers offering the U7500/U7600 will be Gateway who said that its E-100M notebook will be available with the two processors beginning on May 3 of this year.Source: TG Daily

Nice. I love Intels ULV processors. THey are alot better than AMDS, IMO. Too bad they havent figured out a way to make a 2.4GHz processor ULV compliant.

So, what is the operating voltage of a ULV?

Also, do you need a compatible motherboard which will power the processor with the correct voltage?
