Intel announced at the IDF that it's going to release eight small form factor mobile processors and the GS45 Express which is a small form factor version of the GM45 Express chipset.
There will be eight small form factor mobile processors, including two Power Optimised performance chips, two new low-voltage and two new ultra-low voltage Core 2 Duos, along with new Core 2 Solo and Celeron processors.
The new CPU packaging measures just 22 x 22mm—which compares to the standard 35 x 35mm—while the TDPs are also said to be lower than the 35W TDP carried by Intel’s standard mobile Core 2 Duo processors.
Additionally, Intel has announced the introduction of the Intel GS45 Express chipset, which is a full-featured small form factor of the GM45 Express chipset that’s at the heart of the Montevina platform. The two chips that make up the GS45 Express chipset are just 25 x 27mm and 16 x 16mm, compared to 34 x 34mm and 31 x 31mm respectively.
Bit Tech believes Apple may use these chips to update their MacBook Air laptop.
