Building on the theme of reducing the cost of central processors Intel, which has been affected us just a few days ago, drew the attention of readers details about the next steps similar nature and in respect of microchips for mobile computers. At the same time celebrate and models of mobile processors, which will only officially released the world`s leading manufacturers of integrated circuits to the market.
immediately is to say that lower prices will affect only a very limited number of models - in January next year, the company will hold a reduction Intel dual-core model Core 2 Duo P8600 and the budget Celeron processor 585. According to reports, listed microchips podesheveyut from $ 241 to $ 209 and $ 107 to $ 70 for the P8600 and the Celeron 585, respectively.
But significantly expand the range of clients processors:replenish expect high-class quad chip Core 2 Quad, expected in the largest replenishment of the family of dual-core processors Core 2 Duo, and there will be two new models of Celeron. Virtually all new items to the public at the end of 2008, December 28, with only far from the most processor Celeron T1700 and T1600 costing less than $ 100 - The model will go three weeks earlier, on December 7.
As for the more distant perspective, it should be noted the emergence of market solutions for a revitalized Montevina Refresh:Core 2 Duo T9900 and P8800, operating at frequencies of 3, 06 and 2 GHz, 66 GHz, respectively. To expect such a high-speed options issuing costs in the second quarter of next year, a little later in the third quarter, born and a brand new Celeron processors based on 45-nm core Penryn. Thus, all the most interesting events take place only next year but at the end of 2008, Intel will limit itself to the expansion of already produced mobile processor lines.
