Intel Cranks Out New Wi-Fi & Chips At CES 2010

By David Richards In The USA | Thursday | 07/01/2010

Intel, which is fighting off corruption allegations around the world, has used the 2010 CES in Las Vegas to launch several new processors, wireless adapters and chipsets. The new products come at a time when several vendors such as Qualcomm move to take share away from Intel.

The wireless adapters, which are being shown for the first time at CES, support Intel's My Wi-Fi technology, which allows users to turn their laptops into hotspots and directly connect wireless devices. 

The new processors are built with Intel's new 32-nanometer manufacturing process, which produces faster and more energy-efficient products, including Core i7, i5, and i3 processors for desktops, laptops, and embedded systems, 5 Series chipsets, and Centrino Wi-Fi and WiMax adapters. 

"For the first time, there's a new family of Intel processors with the industry's most advanced technology available immediately at virtually every PC price point," Sean Maloney, executive VP and general manager of the Intel Architecture Group, said.

Intel's full line up of 32-nm, dual-core laptop chips, including previously announced processors, now numbers 11. Clock speeds range from 1.06 GHz to 2.66 GHz and pricing, based on orders of 1000 units, ranges from US$241 to $332. For desktops, Intel now has a total of six dual-core chips with clock speeds ranging from 2.93 GHz to 3.46 GHz and prices from $113 to $284. 

In addition, Intel now has four wireless adapters and a dozen processors for embedded systems. The processors have clock speeds ranging from 2.4 GHz to 2.66 GHz, thermal design power from 35 watts to 95 watts, and pricing from $189 to $332. 

The new products are based on Intel's current Nehalem micro architecture and include several new features. The Core i7 and i5 processors feature "turbo-boost" technology, which automatically accelerates performance to meet sudden increases in workload. Some of the desktop and laptop chips also include graphics processors integrated with the CPU on the same piece of silicon for better performance. 

Computer makers are expected to release more than 400 laptop and desktop designs using the latest products, according to Intel. A total of 200 embedded devices are also expected.
