Intel Santa Rosa mobile platform to use EFI - bye bye BIOS

Posted on Wednesday, April 19 2006 @ 19:22:45 CEST by

Intel's next-generation mobile Santa Rosa platform that will be introduced next year will use EFI instead of BIOS.
American Megatrends Inc. (AMI), a leading supplier of BIOS, announced at Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Beijing, China, that Santa Rosa, Intel’s next generation Centrino mobile technology, will be the first of many future customer reference boards (CRBs) from Intel mobile platform group to offer Aptio, an EFI 1.1/UEFI-based firmware.

AMI Aptio is compatible with EFI 1.10, Unified EFI (UEFI) standards, and the Intel platform innovation framework for EFI which is Intel’s “product-strength implementation of EFI and UEFI”. Aptio offers a wide set of mobile features, such as enhanced embedded controller interface, digital thermal sensors, hot key support and quick boot. Aptio also supports the latest advanced mobile features of Intel’s next generation mobile chipsets, including innovative power saving technologies, advanced display options and dual-core processors.
