We've already seen laptops with Intel's new ULV Core i-series but it seems the company has quite a bit planned for this year. Engadget has uncovered and published an Intel roadmap detailing the chip giants entire fall collection.
Engadet reports that, aside from the previously rumored successor to the Core i5-540M (the 2.66GHz / 3.33 GHz Core i5-580M) and the Core i7-740QM/840QM, we can also expect a few more dual-cores at the end of the year. These will come in the form the 2.8GHz Core i7-640M (which turbos to 3.46GHz) and the 2.66GHz / 3.2GHz Core i5-560M.
Intel is also going hell for leather when it comes to Ultra Low Voltage chips. Q4 will bring us two 15W chips: a high-end Core i7-680UM (1.46GHz and turbos up to 2.53GHz) and a Core i5-560UM (1.33GHz / 2.13GHz). There'll also be a 25W Core i7-660LM that clocks in at 2.26GHz.
Engadget reports that all of these will have on die Intel HD graphics to tide us over until 2011 when we'll get WiMax, WiDi and Intel Bluetooth along with a new energy saving concept called Zero Power ODD. Zero Power will offer a power-saving sleep mode for noisy optical drives and enough battery life to play two Blu-ray movies on a single charge.
The moment AMD stops selling cpu's is the moment Intel will increase its prices by 200 percent. Without competition, Intel can set whatever price it wants.
AMD i know for a fact is solely working on bulldozer its a rebuilt CPU (not a phenom) with a ATI 5770 video card ON die!, this is going to KILL intel in games and in photoshop, bulldozer will also work in CF with any other 5xxx series card and 6xxx series card using GPU parallisation.
The Bulldozer will Smoke the Core i7 and Core i9 in games, AND there is a rumour also that they are going to let the GPU do some FPU if this si true its good bye intel for the CPU performance crown, and its coming out Q1 2011
So what, I got money.
