Intel adds more Montevina naming schemes

Posted on Friday, January 11 2008 @ 14:34:33 CET by

DigiTimes heard Intel will add a couple of new segments to its naming scheme for the Montevina processors:
Intel originally had four segments to separate the TDP levels of its notebook CPUs: X for the extreme segment, CPUs that have a TDP over 40W, T for mobile high-performance at 20-39W, L for mobile high energy efficient at 12-19W, and U for mobile ultra-high energy efficient with a TDP less or equal to 11.9W.

Intel will add a P segment for power-optimized energy-efficient high-performance with a TDP between 20-29W in the updated naming scheme, which indicates that the original T segment will have its TDP range changed to between 30-39W, noted the sources.

The company will also add an S class of CPUs, with a smaller package size, aimed at small form factor products. There will be three segments under the S class: SP, SL and SU with TDP ranges of 20-29W, 12-19W and smaller or equal to 11.9W, respectively.

In addition, with Intel to launch quad-core CPU for its notebook platform in the third quarter this year, the company will use the same code as used in its desktop segment,Q, to denote these mobile quad-core CPUs.
Intel updated naming scheme for Montevina CPUs
CPU level Segment TDP range
QX Mobile or desktop quad-core extreme performance Over 40W
X Mobile or desktop dual-core extreme performance Over 40W
T Mobile highly energy efficient 30-39W
P Mobile power optimized energy efficient higher performance 20-29W
L Mobile highly energy efficient 12-19W
U Mobile ultra high energy efficient Less or equal to 11.9W
SP Mobile small package power optimized energy efficient higher performance 20-29W
SL Mobile small package highly energy efficient 12-19W
SU Mobile small package ultra high energy efficient Lessor equal to 11.9W

Montevina needs

eSATA x2
Expresscard x2 (instead of 1)
dual Displayport for dual monitor control
USB x8
internal SATA x3 (dvd/hd1/hd2)
ddr3 1066 (800 isn't enough over 667)
minicard based sound (to alternate sound 'cards')
Docking connector that allows bypass of internal GPU to an external GPU
