Later this year Intel will unveil a new 45nm processor designed for Ultra Mobile PCs:
The UMPC chip is one of the first six processors to be manufactured as part of Intel's 45-nanometer process, Steve Dallman, general manager of Intel's Worldwide Reseller Channel Organization, said at the Intel Solutions Summit in San Diego.

Intel CEO Paul Otellini told partners Monday that the company now has five 45-nm processors running on six operating systems: a notebook dual-core processor, dual- and quad-core desktop processors, and dual- and quad-core DP server processors.

Dallman said the UMPC processor, which would be the sixth 45-nm processor, is designed for much lower power devices but will be able to run Windows Vista.

"The new UltraMobile CPU is in addition to the first five," he said. "The first UltraMobile devices we'll see in the latter part of the year."
