Jeezz that is rather on the hot side. I heard that some Core Duo mobile laptops can run hot but wow. My Sony Vaio using Core Duo T2600 runs at around 40-45 C at idle.
I also have a desktop based on Intel's mobile CPU with a low RPM fan on it so basically no noise from the system. When it was using the Core Duo T2400 overclocked a little, it ran at an amazingly low temperature of 20 Celsius under full load. (Standard speed for T2400 is 1.86 Ghz, I pushed it to 2.2 Ghz) However about a week ago I swapped in the T7400 Core 2 Duo, that really pushed the temperature up, of course overclocked. Stock speed is rated at 2.16 Ghz, currently it is running at 2.73 Ghz. At 2.73 Ghz under full load it is at about 47-48 Celsius. Quite a big difference in temperature but given that it is a lot higher of an overclock and still stable, quite nice. I'm sure I could push it even faster but I find it quite adequate at the current speed.
I don't know if it rivals the desktop version, Conroe in actual performance. But speed wise (gigahertz), it is comparable. For Folding @ Home, it crunches the SMP stuff fast
. Usually averaging depending on the protein job, between 12-16 min per frame. With the older Core Duo, it took on average between 23-27 min per frame... significant difference. Perhaps I'll overclock it more and see how much more time I can shave off per frame.
