Intel to standardize small computer systems

Posted on Tuesday, August 23 2005 @ 20:35:47 CEST by

Intel informed its customers that in the first quarter of next year its next-generation architecture for small-profile PCs will use the dual-core mobile Yonah processor. The chip giant plans to push its "Mobile in Desktop Platform" concept for small-profile PCs which lack space for heat dissipation.

Along with the digital home strategy (East Fork), Intel plans to divide the desktop PC market into six market segments: standard sized Tower, Mini Tower, All in One, Entertainment PC, Ultra Sleek and Mini PC. These six models will be based on Intel's dual-core Anchor Creek and Yonah platforms.
