Intel Shows off possiable MacBook Air's new processor

The boys over at MacRumors posted something today about Intel showing off a new processor that just might end up in the MacBook Air.  How exciting is that?!?!?  I truly doubt that this will happen by this rumored September update, but ut is still exciting.

But this is interesting…..

Both the SL9400 (1.8GHz) and the SL9300 (1.6GHz) use a 1066MHz FSB and carry 6MB of L2 cache. Intel is also introducing a pair of 10W processors: the SU9400 (1.4GHz) and SU9300 (1.2GHz). Both of these chips run on an 800MHz FSB and carry 3MB of L2 cache.

So does this mean that there “technically” no speed bump since the processors are equal or LESS THEN the current processors?!?!!  This is my lack on knowledge in this area.  I guess thtat the new front bus speed bumping up from 800MHz to 1066MHZ is awesome….?
