Intel's upcoming Centrino 'Napa' platform will be introduced in early 2006 and it will include the highly anticipated dual-core Pentium M 'Yonah' processor. The company claims its new mobile platform will bring more power and a lower power consumption than the current Centrino platform.
Intel claims the latest notebook technology stands to boost average performance 68 percent beyond that of its current Sonoma platform, which includes its single-core Pentium M, while reducing power consumption an average of 28 percent, extending battery life beyond the 5-hour mark, Reid said. Napa also improves wireless bandwidth and can help cut the size of a notebook by 30 percent versus today's machines, the Santa Clara, Calif., company said.
