Intel working on very low-cost Shelton'08 desktop platform

Posted on Wednesday, November 14 2007 @ 00:16:58 CET by

Intel is working on a new low-cost desktop platform called Shelton'08. DigiTimes reports this platform will be used in cheap notebooks for developing countries.

It's expected that notebooks with Shelton'08 will arrive in Q3 2008 for less than $300. Shortly afterwards Shelton'08 desktop systems will follow for only $100. Quite cheap.
According to the sources, the platform will use 45nm Diamondville processors, with either Intel's 945GC or SiS 671 chipsets. It supports Microsoft Vista Basic.

US$100 desktop systems will be much lower-priced than just about all current mid-range and entry-level branded desktop PCs, which range in price from NT$10,000-20,000 (US$309.82-619.64), the sources commented, adding the launch of the Intel platform will spur a wave of demand for low-cost notebooks and desktops.

The sources revealed that Intel has already informed PC makers including Asustek Computer and Shuttle of its Shelton'08 plan, in the hopes that they can also step up the development of low-cost desktops for emerging markets.
