Intel Corporation has introduced four new processors, including a low-power version and a value chipset, to usher in mainstream “ultra-thin” laptops.
Intel ultra-low voltage (ULV) processors will enable new sleek consumer laptop designs less than an inch thick, weighing 2-to-5 pounds and at mainstream price points. These processors also consume less power to enable longer battery life, delivering the type of experience consumers expect from Intel-based laptops. In addition, Intel also announced the addition of new devices that can now wirelessly connect using optional Intel My WiFi Technology.
“With an ultra-thin laptop powered by Intel ultra-low voltage processors, consumers experience a unique balance of performance and power consumption that is incomparable in the market today—all in a slim, sleek package,” said Mooly Eden, vice president and general manager of the Mobile Platforms Group at Intel. “And at mainstream price points, Intel is proud to deliver ultra thin for all.”
Intel extends its leadership on the standard voltage (SV) Intel Core 2 Duo processors, with offerings up to 3.06 GHz. These energy-efficient processors deliver breakthrough mobile performance and responsiveness for demanding business users and consumers. Users will see improved performance when running multiple, intense applications simultaneously, as well as dual-core optimised applications.
In addition, Intel unveiled the Mobile Intel GS40 Express Chipset for the new ULV-based laptops. This value chipset enables ULV-based laptops to support features consumers have come to expect from laptops including HD playback, Windows Vista Premium support and native support for integrated HDMI.
