Intel Centrino 2 roadmap unveiled

Posted on Thursday, February 28 2008 @ 00:30:47 CET by


Intel is planning to release its Centrino 2 platform in June. This new notebook platform will feature processors with a power consumption between 5.5W and 35W, DisplayPort, 2x better IGP chipsets and some other new features.

DailyTech published the specifications of the Penryn Core 2 Duo performance processors and the small form factor (SFF) models:

One of the special processors in the SFF lineup is the 1.2GHz U3300 which has a power consumption of only 5.5W. This chip will be used the slimmest of slim notebooks and tablets.

The Centrino 2 platform will also introduce the new GM45, GM47 and PM45 chipsets:
The GM45/47 will feature Intel's new X4500 HD integrated graphics processor which promises DX10 support, increased battery life, integrated HDMI and DisplayPort.

The GM45/47 support 667MHz and 1066MHz FSBs, DDR2/DDR3 memory, and the ICH9M/ICH9M-Enhanced south bridges. The two parts only differ in the clock speed for the graphics core -- the GM45 features a 533 MHz core clock while the GM47 has a faster 640 MHz core clock.

Intel marketing materials claim GM47 performs twice as high on 3DMark as GM965 found in the current Santa Rosa chipsets.

The PM45 supports all the features of the two aforementioned chipsets minus the integrated graphics core. The PM45 thus will be used with integrated mobile graphics solutions from ATI and NVIDIA.
Also new is the support for 2GB of Turbo Memory, the new 82567LM and 82567LF Gigabit Ethernet controllers, WiFi Link 5100/5300 WLAN controllers and WiMAX/WiFi Link 5150/5350 WiFi/WiMAX controllers.
