Intel Presents Processor Family for ‘Ultra Thin’ Laptops

Posted on 24 May 2010, Last updated on 24 May 2010 by

In a Webcast (still ongoing) by Intel today, Mooly Eden has  just presented Intel’s processor range for ultra-thin laptops.

Based on Nehalem, products will include Intel Turbo technology that will allow cores to run up to thermal limits based on live measurements.

The U3400 (1Ghz Celeron) , U5400 (1.2Ghz Pentium) could be interesting for high-end UMPCs although Mooly talked about 17W TDP in his presentation. Remember that the parts are relatively expensive too. Mainly though, this is a product range for stylish laptops…

Update: In the Q&A, Mooly mentioned that Intel will disclose and discuss new silicon for the tablet space.

    I’m still hoping for some company to release an affordable notebook with a 10 inch screen and a CULV CPU like the Core i5-540UM. The smallest one so far would be the upcoming Acer 1830T that has a Core i5-520UM but it has an 11 inch screen (so close).

    The 17W TDP includes the capable HD Graphics so its not all that bad. It’s probably an overkill to expect one inside next Sony UX however. :)

    I really don’t see the point in ultra-thin laptops/netbooks. I mean, what is important is size and weight, not thinness. What does it matter whether the netbook is 8mm thicker if it’s the same size? you’ll still have to carry the same backpack around won’t you?
