Intel displays 45nm mobile quad-core
Sources at notebook makers revealed that, at launch, the CPU will fall into the Core 2 Extreme series. The core is part of the Penryn family and the chip will form part of the Montevina platform. Also during the keynote address, Eden presented a new strategy for cooling notebooks based on compressor technology similar to that used in refrigerators and air conditioners. The compressor on display was a cylinder about 2cm in diameter and 10cm long and Eden showcased a notebook stand and cooling system containing three compressors which he claimed can reduce notebook chassis temperatures by around 10-degrees Celsius. Eden also showed how the compressors can be incorporated directly with a notebook’s heatsink and fan assembly to be installed internally in the system.
