The main problem with an "in the wild" spotting of a processor is that it's just not all that exciting staring at a lump of silicon. That said, it is exciting that Intel's new top-shelf 2.8GHz Core 2 Extreme X7900 mobile chip is making the rounds, and the folks that got a hold of this one managed to stick it into a computer and run some benchmarks. From the looks of things, the X7900 beats its predecessors pretty handily, but that's about all we could glean from this fleeting forum post, and hope to see this in shipping machines before too long -- like that Precision M6300 Dell announced the other week.
