Intel Revises Centrino Product Family with New Chips, Logic.
Intel Corp. on Wednesday officially unveiled its new mobile Centrino-branded platform previously known as Sonoma targeting users seeking for multimedia capabilities, higher performance and longer battery life out of their notebooks.
“The platform’s new consumer and office-friendly capabilities allow an Intel Centrino mobile technology-based laptop to be not only a computer and wireless communicator, but also a gaming console, home theater, MP3 player and a critical business companion — all in a mobile design that can go virtually anywhere,” Intel said in its statement.
New Intel Centrino Gets More Performance, Features
In accordance with expectations, new Intel’s Centrino platforms feature higher-performance Intel Pentium M processors with 533MHz processor system bus, specially designed chipsets – Intel’s i915GM, i915GMS, i915PM and i910GML, dual-channel DDR2 memory, PCI Express bus, DirectX 9.0-supporting Intel Graphics and Media Adapter 900, high definition 7.1 audio, Serial ATA-150 as well as Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection that sports all three widely adopted wireless standards – 802.11a,b and g.
Intel said that the Sonoma platform primarily targets the consumers, while the initial Centrino incarnation addressed the needs of business and enterprise users, who are not much interested in loads of multimedia capabilities, but are more concentrated on battery life and wireless LAN capability, still, Intel incorporated a number of technologies that further reduce power consumption of notebooks, such as Intel Display Power Saving Technology 2 (Intel DPST2), which reduces display backlight power by up to 400mW with minimal visual impact.
