Intel Unveils 16 Next-Generation Processors, Including First Notebook Chips Built on 45nm Technology

New Transistor Design, Manufacturing Capabilities will Also Power Mobile Internet Devices

INTERNATIONAL 2008 CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW, Las Vegas, Jan. 7, 2008 – Intel Corporation unveiled 16 products today, including the company's first 45 nanometer (nm) processors for Intel Centrino Processor Technology based laptops.

All of these new chips include the company's new transistor formula and 45nm manufacturing process that boost a PC's speed, reduces power requirements, saves on battery life, helps the environment and comes in smaller packages for more fashionable and compact computer designs. With the introduction of the new processors, Intel will be offering a total of 32 desktop, laptop and server processors based on these industry-leading innovations.

The company also highlighted how it will take advantage of its transistor and manufacturing advances to spur a category of small form-factor, low-powered, high-performance devices that deliver broadband Internet access "in your pocket." The processors are up to 25 percent smaller than previous versions so computer makers can create sleek, new designs for consumers ranging from stylish all-in-one desktop PCs to smaller notebooks.

Among the 16 new products, 12 are designed for new laptops and desktops products and four are for servers. All are now lead-free1 and, starting this year, halogen-free2, making the processors more eco-friendly...

Intel Corp., the world's biggest semiconductor maker, unveiled 16 new chips Monday, including its first 45-nanometer laptop processors, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The chips all feature Intel's new transistor formula and 45-nanometer manufacturing process, which boosts a computer's speed, saves power and battery life and comes in smaller packages, the company said.

Three quad-core and four dual-core 45-nanometer-based processors will be available later this month and throughout the first quarter, Intel said.

Later this year, Intel also plans to launch a family of small, low-powered devices to deliver broadband Internet access in packages tiny enough to fit in a pocket. These processors are up to 25 percent smaller than earlier versions.

Of the 16 new products, 12 are designed for new laptops and desktop computers and four are for servers.

Intel plans to spend $8 billion on upgrading or building factories to make its 45-nanometer chips. It is ahead of its smaller rival, Advanced Micro Devices Inc., in moving to the new technology.

Intel shares slid 14 cents to $22.53.

 

Alright!  old processors please start dropping in price NOW!!!

 I'm no expert but this is how I C it: 

1.) The future always wants slimer, faster, lighter products when it comes to electronics.. .

2.) So.. . functionality of a wifi / bluetooth broadband internet on your phone, PDA, wrist watch, iPOD, wrist watch etc... . . Obviously you currently have to use airtime minutes to get internet now on your phones.. . an added chip or replacement chip that can run phone operations and process broadband speeds.
