Intel '09 Roadmap Revealed: Part 2!

By - Source: Tom's Hardware | B 14 comments

At this point we have some useful data – we already know what is coming and what expected prices are going to be like. Of course final pricing may deviate from what is projected from Intel at this point depending on the current market at the time of release. On-top of all of this, Nvidia enthusiasts will now have more freedom when it comes to a choice of boards.

As was covered in previous reports, Intel boards, chipsets and processors will also support discrete graphics – which essentially means, you can use Nvidia SLI on its new boards. If you would like a little more information regarding this topic specifically, please see this post.

Onto the Intel mobile platform. Intel has some nice offerings for Q4 of 2008 and continuing on into 2009 for all aspects of mobile computing – ranging from entry level value all the way up to extreme gaming consumers. Let’s take a quick look at the projected roadmap that starts with Q3 of 2008.

So we also have some useful data here as well in terms of mobile computing. We have some basic technical specifications of the processors and the TDP of the Netbook ones. Unfortunately the TDP data for all the standard mobile processors was unavailable to us. Surely enough we should see some Intel publicized data shortly.

    good to see some improvement in the next generation of notebook CPU's as well. clocks are somewhat better. Both intel and AMD are introducing there newest models right now. and the first new centrino's and turion ultra's can already been found in newer notebook models

    I seriously doubt that the notebook quad will be released at 2.53ghz with 12mb of cache, nothing short of a miracle is going to make that thermal and power envelope fit into a notebook, even their most bleeding edge technology would be doing very well to keep it under 65watts. It would be like the Pentium IV 3.8ghz, where the CPU thermal throttling kicks in under load everytime, effectively making it run at slower speeds.

    Please make a resonable price for Quad Core notebook prosesor.

    I highly doubt they will make a more affordable mobile quad-core for a LONG time. They have no competition there, and there's no telling when they will, even from themselves. AMD probably isn't ever going to be in a position to be sticking quad-core Phenoms in the average laptop, and (surprise!) they delayed Bulldozer. The mobile Core i7s were delayed as well, so Intel won't even be outdoing them for quite some time.

    Quad-core desktops sure have become affordable, but it doesn't look like that's in the cards for laptops. It's too bad, considering the average new desktop is pretty much overkill at this point, so even with laptops having a disadvantage, if there was a little competition to get the prices more in line with desktops, for most of us, just one laptop would do it.

    Mobile processor charts mention P9500 - shouldn't that be P8500?

    Your subtitle about helping us decide about upgrading is totally misleading. How many of us care about the processors that are being phased out? Who cares about mobile processors? What's coming out and when?

    That QX9300 should be desktop enthusiast part. 2.5GHz with unlocked multi might be aimed at current Phenom 9950 BE. I guess that the pricing might be between $250 to $300.

    AnonymousA123 if you don't care about that info, just don't read it ? The roadmap's important for those of us who're actually buying a lot of stuff. Knowing when a certain cpu is being phased out, or a new one becomming available, is very useful knowledge when making sure hp ships us the current hardware, instead of their leftovers from the last model. We're typically buying a two digit number of laptops at a time, so if we could hold off for a week or two and get better cpu's it's nice to know. (or get a discount for taking the old model etc).

    wow, no i7 mobile part until this time next year. It's going to be a long wait for i7 powered MBP.

    Apparently you missed yesterday's "Part 1" article before making dumb comments.

    Do you have any info on the SL series with a TDW of 17W vs 25W for the P series? It seems to have been left out of the Roadmap. The SL9300 and SL9400 will be offered on the Thinkpad X200s line. I'm curious about any evolution of the 17W TDW processors.

    If see another picture of coins on Toms Hardware I am going to be upset.

    I love that the Q6X00s aren't even on this one-year EOL roadmap.

    I think along with the 8800gt, they are going in this last generation's hall-of-staying-power fame.

    Seriously, what was the last computer component that was worth buying for 3 years?

    QX9300 has 1066 FSB with 45W TDP
    All the P's seems to have a 25W TDP
    and all the T's are 35W TDP
