The Intel Core 2 Extreme processor X9000 is the flagship mobile processor and we got a chance to take it for a test drive in the Dell XPS M1730 notebook. We took the time to overclock the 2.8GHz processor in the notebook and was able to get 3.4GHz out of this killer 45nm processor. If you are looking for the ultimate gaming notebook processor look no further!
Article Title: Intel Core 2 Extreme Mobile X9000 on the Dell M1730
The Dell XPS M1730 is the perfect system to test the out the Intel Core 2 Extreme X9000 processor as it has all the latest technology stuffed under the hood. The Dell XPS M1730 offers support of the highest-end components available today, Intel Core 2 Extreme processors, Nvidia GeForce 8800M GTX SLI graphics, the first mobile PhysX processor, and two SATA hard drives. Our test system (pictured above) came with a pair of NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTX graphics cards in SLI, a pair of 250GB Seagate Momentus 7200.3 ST9250421ASG hard drives in RAID, 4GB (only 3GB available) of DDR2 667MHz memory and of course the Intel Core 2 Extreme Mobile X9000 Processor.

Over 10k in 3DMark @ 3.4Ghz?!?!? I want one!
Nice review. Not so sure I would want to pay that much for a notebook though. Maybe I'll try and get my work to pick up the tab!
Just a little puppy trying to make it in a big digital world.

My Dell XPS 1710 is starting to look a little dated!
HAHA I agree 100%. I feel cheated now! Too bad there's no trade-up. I mean, I like my M1710, but this one is SOOO much better. I guess I should have waited before buying it. But then again, you can keep saying that and never own any computer equipment at all. lol
