Intel seems to have some trouble keeping machines powered by its upcoming Sandy Bridge processors from getting into the public domain ahead of its official launch. Someone out there apparently managed to purchase an HP dv7 notebook powered by Intel’s latest silicon. The notebook was apparently purchased at an Ohio-based computer store, Micro Center, and is powered by a quad-core i7-2630QM processor clocked between 2GHz and 2.9GHz. The user benchmarked it using tools such as Cinebench, which returned a score that was just slightly below Intel’s quad-core i7-860 and i7-960 desktop processors. The notebook also features a new ATI Radeon graphics card with 1GB of GDDR5 dedicated graphics memory, along with 6GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive and a Blu-ray drive.
