Continued Innovation with Next-Generation Moorestown Platform – Chandrasekher highlighted Intel’s Moorestown platform which is targeted to launch in 2009/10. Moorestown consists of an SOC and an I/O Hub. The SOC, codenamed “Lincroft,” will integrate a 45nm Silverthorne core, graphics, video, and memory controller on to a single chip. The I/O Hub, codenamed “Langwell,” will support a range of I/O blocks such as storage and display, and will interface with a third-party PMIC and wireless solutions.
Intel® Centrino® 2 processor technology details: Perlmutter provided additional details including significant gains in visualization, 3-D graphics and native hardware support for high-definition with Blu-ray Disc DVDs. In addition, Dadi demonstrated the processor performance increase and the benefits of including Intel solid state drive technology in the platform. Intel Centrino 2 processor technology will debut on laptops in June.
“Calpella”: Perlmutter provided a first look at Intel’s 2009 notebook platform, codenamed “Calpella.” This next-generation Centrino platform will include a processor based on “Nehalem.” Nehalem will bring leading-edge performance advantages and enhanced power efficiency.
Demonstrated Netbooks: Two Intel-based concept netbooks were shown by Perlmutter. Intel is leading the industry and enabling a new class of affordable, easy-to-use laptops called “netbooks.” These simple, low-cost, Internet-centric devices are designed for basic tasks such as browsing, video viewing, social networking and education. Intel’s new purpose-built low-power architecture, coupled with its industry-leading high-K manufacturing process, is perfectly suited for this new market opportunity. Intel based netbooks will be available in June.
