Intel has quietly expanded it’s new CULV chip family to include two dual core Celeron processors.
At Computex last week announced several new chips with one of the more notable being being the 1.3 GHz SU2700. The CULV chip featured a thermal design power 10W, which compares favorably to the standard volt processors TDP of 25W to 35W. Digitimes today cites sources at notebook makers who say Intel has added the Celeron 740 (1.3 GHz) and SU2300 (1.2 GHz) to its CULV platform.
Intel refused to respond to the Digtimes report, claiming it cannot comment on unannounced products. However, last week in Taiwan, when the company announced the SU2700, pairing with the new GS40 chipset, Mooly Eden VP and general manager of the Mobile Platforms group at Intel was quoted as saying, "With an ultra-thin laptop powered by Intel ultra-low voltage processors, consumers experience a unique balance of performance and power consumption that is incomparable in the market today – all in a slim, sleek package. And at mainstream price points, Intel is proud to deliver ultra thin for all."
