ComputerWorld reports Intel is readying Kilmer Peak, a wireless chipset with support for 2.3GHz, 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz WiMAX. It will launch with the Calpella Arrandale notebook platform in Q1 2010.
Intel's current WiMax chipsets only support the 2.5GHz version of WiMax, which is used in markets like Japan, the U.S. and Taiwan. The company doesn't yet support the 2.3GHz profile, which is used by operators in South Korea and Malaysia, or the 3.5GHz version used in Pakistan. That will change with Kilmer Peak.
"Kilmer Peak is in production and will launch with the Calpella Arrandale notebook platform solution in Q1 2010," Intel spokesman Barry Sum wrote in an e-mail, adding that the chipset will support the three WiMax profiles.
