A ROADMAP has leaked out of Intel's glorious plans to take the mobile chip market by storm this year.
According to a slide found by Engadget, specifications for Chipzilla's entire fall collection of mobile chips have tipped up.
It looks like the Core i7s and Core i5s will end up for mobile use, but the 2.66GHz / 3.33 GHz Core i5-580M won't be the only dual-core CPU to look for in your Christmas stocking.
There will be a 2.8GHz Core i7-640M that turbos to 3.46GHz and the 2.66GHz / 3.2GHz Core i5-560M. These beasts will draw 35 watts.
There will also be a 15W CULV chip and there might be more of those in development than Intel has been talking about.
There is a high end Core i7-680UM that starts at 1.46GHz and a 1.33GHz Core i5-560UM, plus a 25W 2.26GHz Core i7-660LM low voltage chip.
All of these dual-core chips will have on-die Intel HD Graphics until Intel's 32nm "Huron River" platform appears next year. According to the roadmap that is when we will see WiMAX, WiDi and Intel Bluetooth.
There is also a new idea that Intel calls Zero Power ODD, which promises a power-saving sleep mode for optical disks drives. Intel thinks that it will provide enough battery life to play two full Blu-ray discs on a single charge.
We are hoping to collar Intel about all of this at Computex. µ
