Intel to launch Centrino 2 platform


by Janet Harris

Intel’s new notebook platform, Centrino 2, could be unveiled next week.

Centrino 2, formerly codenamed Montevina, is designed to provide better performance, reduced power consumption and therefore longer battery life, as well as broad wireless network interoperability.

It features a 45nm, dual-core Penryn-class mobile processor, and as well as supporting DDR3 memory and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, some versions will also support WiMax.

Intel is working on quad-core CPUs for the platform.

Intel had intended to launch Centrino 2 earlier, but problems with its own integrated graphics delayed the launch.

Apparently these still haven’t been resolved as only Centrino 2 systems running discrete graphics from NVIDIA or ATI will be launched next week.
