Intel unveil next-gen mobile platform, Montevina
Montevina won?t be the first platform to support Penryn, as there is a Santa Rosa refresh due when the new mobile processors launch at the start of next year. The platform will include integrated support for Blu-ray and HD DVD along with next-generation data manageability and security features for businesses. Montevina will also integrate both WiFi and WiMAX which, according to Intel will not result in increased power consumption… During Otellini?s keynote there was a Montevina ?notebook? up and running, but it wasn?t exactly elegant ? it was sitting in a dummy case. However, this morning Dadi Perlmutter showed off the first notebook based on the new platform. Both machines were running Windows and running it well.
