Intel ha annunciato quattro nuovi processori e un nuovo chipset, tutti dedicati ai sistemi mobile. Tre dei nuovi processori sono dei modelli Standard
Voltage (SV), appartenenti alla linea Core 2 Duo: si tratta dei chip siglati T9900 (clock dei core a 2.06GHz, TDP pari a 35W, 6MB di cache L2, MSRP pari a $530), P9700 (clock dei core a 2.80GHz, TDP pari a 25W, 6MB di cache L2, MSRP pari a $348) e P8800 (clock dei core a 2.66GHz, TDP pari a 25 W, 3MB di cache
L2, MSRP pari a $241).
La quarta cpu è una Ultra-Low Voltage (ULV), siglata SU2700, la cui frequenza di clock è pari a 1.3 GHz. Come i nuovi Core 2 Duo, anche questa ULV supporta la frequenza di 1066MHz per il FSB.
Un'altra novità presentata da Intel è il chipset GS40 Express Mobile, che il produttore statunitese ha progettato per la realizzazione di soluzioni laptop basate sui processori ULV. Il playback in HD, la piena compatibilità con Windows Vista Premium e la capacità nativa di gestire le uscite HDMI sono alcune delle feature in primo piano del GS40 Express Mobile.
Questi prodotti saranno disponibili a breve sul mercato.

COMPUTEX, TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 2, 2009 – Today at Computex, Intel Corporation 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 optimized 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
Consumers have choice when it comes to their wireless options by adding embedded WiMAX or Intel My WiFi Technology to their laptops. Using
Intel My WiFi Technology, more devices can now wirelessly connect to Intel Centrino 2 processor technology laptops. My WiFi Technology transforms a laptop
into a WiFi personal area network, connecting directly with up to eight WiFi certified devices without cables or wires, including cameras, printers, HDTV and
MP3 players, to print, share, show and sync wirelessly at home or on the go. With high-speed broadband WiMAX networks rolling out in new cities around the
world, embedded WiMAX is also an option for users, putting consumers on the forefront of 4G wireless with an entire city as their own hotspot.
