Intel Centrino 2 Mobile Platform Has Issues, Analyst Claims
Intel Corp.’s next-generation mobile platform known under “Centrino 2” brand-name as well as under “Montevina” code-name may have issues with new wireless network controller as well as built-in graphics core inside core-logic. While the impact of the problems is uncertain, the most logical consequence of such issues is slower than expected ramp of the platform or product launch delay.
According to American Technology Research analyst Doug Friedman, Intel had a mis-step in the completion of FCC certification of a next-generation Wi-Fi 802.11n wireless network controller, which means that at least initially Intel Centrino 2 laptops will be equipped with previous-generation 802.11a/b/g controllers in the U.S. In addition, Mr. Friedman said in a note to clients that the chipmaker had discovered issues with Intel GM45 core-logic that features integrated graphics core.
Lucky for Intel all P45 silicon is fused G45 chips... Intel hasn't been able to properly launch an integrated GPU in ages, suspect they'll be a few hiccups with Larrabee at the rate Intel is currently going.
