    Intel launches the Centrino 2 mobile plaform this Monday, the 14th. Centrino 2, codenamed Montevina is behind launch-schedule owing to issues detected in the integrated graphics controller. The chipset released will be that which supports discrete graphics controllers from ATI or NVIDIA.

    Intel Centrino 2 for now is targeted towards the business-class and enterprise segments. The chipset supports DDR3 memory which brings in a certain level of energy efficiency with added performance. At the heart of it would be a 45nm processor based on the Penryn architecture. Initially dual-core processors, with quad-core based notebooks later. The wireless network controller supports the newer 802.11n and WiMAX standards. Security and management features come in through the vPro technology.

    These 45nm dual-core processors are said to run at 25W, an efficiency increment over previous generation running at 35W.

    Lets just hope they manage to keep the battery above 3 hours with the new tech.

    Yeah i know. My 2 year old Acer with with a T7200 and a x1600 has a better battery life than some laptops out on the market right now. I can manage a ~3:20 the most from this lappy and it is more than enough for me.
