Intel Quietly Ships 2.33 GHz Core Duo

Intel has begun shipping Core Duo T2700 series (2.33 GHz), the company's latest and greatest "Yonah" derived CPU (via DailyTech). It is currently expected that this will be the last Core Duo release before the mobile Core 2 Duo, aka "Merom" is released in August.

It is unknown whether Apple is planning to upgrade its line to accomodate the T2700 at this time. Currently, Apple's top of the line Intel processor offering is the 2.16 GHz Core Duo (T2600) in the 15" and 17" MacBook Pros.
