Windows 7 laptops to feature new designs

Posted on Monday, August 03 2009 @ 00:16:32 CEST by

CNET reports Windows 7 laptops will feature new designs. Netbooks for instance will feature the new "Pine Trail" Atom processors, while ultra-thin notebooks will introduce the use of laminar air flow technology to cool a laptop's outer skin:
One of the challenges for Intel is making sure these sub-one-inch-thick designs don't overheat. Eden described the use of laminar air flow technology to cool a laptop's outer skin. "This is the difference between thin comfortable and thin uncomfortable," he said.

Intel is also designing new fans that are better at getting hot air out faster. "We are putting a lot of effort into designing fans," said Eden. Intel demonstrated the fan technology at the conference Wednesday.
Furthermore, performance-oriented systems with the Core i7 mobile processors will feature HUGI (Hurry Up and Get Idle), a technology that instantly spikes the clockspeed of an individual processor core to accomplish a task then, in the next instant, go idle.
In the demonstration, one of the cores (inside, let's say, a mobile quad-core chip), would jump well over the processor's rated speed. For example, a processor rated at 2.0GHz, for example, may run one of the cores at 2.60GHz (or higher) while the other cores are idle. In the gaming world, this is referred to as overclocking.
