Dell and other notebook vendors to use ARM chips in notebooks

Posted on Wednesday, November 26 2008 @ 10:40:31 CET by

DigiTimes reports Dell will soon release Latitude E4200 and E4300 notebooks with an ARM sub-processor to offer users a near-instant on operating system with a multi-day battery life. Other notebook vendors are also said to be considering to release hybrid systems with Intel and ARM processors.
While UK-based IP firm ARM is aggressively targeting Intel's turf in the netbook market with its ARM-based processors, notebook makers and vendors are considering offering hybrid solutions that would combine the best of both worlds concerning optimizing the features offered by Intel and ARM.

Hybrid solutions would include both an Intel CPU and an ARM-based processor, with the energy-efficient ARM processor being used for Internet applications such as email and web browsing, while the Intel processor would be used for power-intensive office productivity applications.

In August, Dell previewed its Dell Latitude ON, a new technology that the company claims will enable near-instant access to e-mail, calendar, attachments, contacts and the Web without booting into the system's main operating system (OS). Dell says the dedicated low-voltage ARM sub-processor can enable multi-day battery life and the vendor expects to soon include this feature with its Latitude E4200 and E4300 models.
