Intel Demonstrates Centrino 3 Mobile Platform

We are barely months into having Centrino 2 laptops at the store, following delays of six weeks with its launch owing to last minute glitches with its integrated graphics (IGP), and Intel has already demonstrated a Nehalem-based mobile computing platform at the ongoing Intel Developer Forum (IDF). This mobile computing platform for now can be loosely called a prelude to the successor of Centrino 2, it is codenamed Calpella.

The platform will be using dual-core and quad-core CPUs codenamed Auburndale and Clarksfield respectively. Intel set-up a Clarksfield validation platform with the mobile Nehalem in situ. The size of the active cooler explains a lot, and that's a quad-core chip we're talking about. It wouldn't be too far sighted telling that by this time, next year high-end laptops will be equipped with an 8-thread-capable Nehalem mobile CPU.

Intel to Discontinue Older Centrino CPUs in 2008

Intel is planning to issue a product discontinuance notice (PDN) for its Napa Refresh platform CPUs including T7600, T7400, T7200, T5600 and T5500 in January next year, while the end of lifecycle (EOL) process will take place in March. Intel has already issued the PDN for its Napa platform CPUs including T2700, T2600, T2500, T2400, T2300 and T2300E this month with EOL set for November this year. Entry-level CPUs, Celeron M 530 and 520, will also receive PDN in January next year and EOL in March, while the M 450, 440 and 430 have also already reached PDN this month with EOL in November. The discontinuance over ten 65nm notebook processors should benefit Intel over production costs while helping to smooth completion of its goal to switch to 45nm process in two years.
