Introduces dual-core mobile processor
Plans to unveil eight new processors within 90 days
About 250 innovative notebook PC designs are on the way
NEW DELHI: Intel Corporation on Tuesday unveiled Intel Centrino 2 Processor Technology products for laptops, powered by five new Intel Core2 Duo processors.
Close to 250 innovative consumer and business notebook PC designs are on the way, including those equipped with the right combination of powerful processors, graphics and battery life to enjoy stunning high definition videos and myriad other computer and Internet activities. Intel also introduced the world’s highest performing dual-core mobile processor.
Rounding out a mobile-focussed summer for the company, the company said it planned to unveil eight new processors within 90 days that would include first-ever mobile quad-core products and second generation products for ultra thin and light notebooks.
In total, Intel will bring 14 diverse new processors into the marketplace as laptop sales continue to outpace desktop PCs. Intel Centrino 2 processor technology and Intel Centrino 2 with vPro Technology improve upon every facet of a laptop’s main features, including performance and battery life via new processors and chipsets, faster draft 802.11n wireless (with WiMAX arriving later this year), and new business-class manageability capabilities.
“When we first introduced Intel Centrino back in 2003, there were very few Wi-Fi hotspots, YouTube videos and social media did not really exist, ‘thin and light’ only referred to weight goals and desktop PCs outsold notebooks by a very wide margin,” R. Ravichandran, Director-Sales, Intel South Asia, told newsmen here.
Intel also unveiled its new Mobile Intel 45 Express Chipset and wireless Intel WiFi Link 5000 series that is shipping to customers now, with laptops arriving in July and August.
For consumers, Intel Centrino 2 processor technology delivers the horsepower and battery life to enjoy a typical full-length, Blu-ray high-definition video on a single battery charge for the first time, plus the ability to play a variety of online games, download music or post videos faster than before.
