Introduction and Test Configuration

On the day the Core 2 Duo was officially announced, we revealed to the world the potential of the Merom Core 2 Duo T7400 mobile CPU by using an Asus Z96JS laptop. While the performance tests showed nice increases, there were some issues notably in power management and with some tests showing lower results than the older Core Duo T2600 CPU.


This week Intel and Asus have released an updated BIOS for the Z96JS laptop that fully supports the new Core 2 Duo CPUs. After a flash, let's see what has changed.
