Intel Moorestown can't run Windows

Posted on Wednesday, June 02 2010 @ 00:00:16 CEST by

AnandTech discovered Intel's Moorestown platform can't run Windows because it has no PCI bus. Oaktrail solves this problem, but this platform uses more power than Moorestown.
Moorestown can’t run Windows. It has no PCI bus, and without one you can’t run Windows. Oaktrail solves this problem.

Take Lincroft (Atom Z6xx series SoC) and pair it with a new PCH, codenamed Whitney Point and you get Oaktrail. Whitney Point is effectively Langwell plus SATA, HD Audio, HDMI and a bunch of legacy I/O (HPET, GPIO, RTC, DMA). Oaktrail is roughly the same footprint as Moorestown and although it’ll consume more power it’ll use less than Pine Trail.

It fixes the smartbook problem and you have the option of running Windows 7 on it if you’d like, something an ARM based smartbook can’t do.
