Intel Arrandale chip will be an Intel laptop first
Lots of hardware news today, thanks to the ‘Hot Chips’ conference, but an announcement from Intel claims that their upcoming ‘Arrandale’ chipset will soon be making an appearance in laptops .
Arrandale will come initially under the Core i7 and Core i5 brands, using the chipmaker’s most advanced 32-nanometer technology (Intel chips are currently built on a 45-nanometer process) and will populate consumer and business laptops.
Arrandale is not to be confused with Larrabee. While Larrabee is a completely new architecture, Arrandale is Intel’s standard graphics chip just integrated into a dual-core CPU.
