Future Intel mobile CPUs spotted in notebooks
As you may already know from publications on our and other hardware news sites, in the third and forth quarters of this year Intel will launch the next wave of mobile Arrandale-based CPUs: Core i7-640M, Core i5 models i5-560M and i5-580M, Celeron P4600, as well as Penryn-based Celeron T3500. Yesterday we reported on two other models that maybe launched at about the same time: Core i3-380M and Core i5-460M. We also suspect that mobile Pentium dual-core family will be updated with Pentium P6100. This Pentium CPU was spotted for the first time in May of this year. For you convenience, we included short microprocessors' specs, expected released dates and the prices in the table at the end of this story. This week we came across three notebooks that include support for many of the forthcoming CPUs.
eMachines D732 notebook with 14" display comes with currently available Core i3 mobile i3-350M and i3-370M processors, may include up to 4 DDR3 RAM, up to 750 GB or larger hard disk drive, and use either integrated on-chip HD graphics, or optional ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 video card. The notebook also adds support for future Core i3-380M, Core i5-460M, i5-560M and i5-580M microprocessors:
Fujitsu posted datasheets for two notebooks, LIFEBOOK NH570 and LIFEBOOK A530/AH530, that will support new Intel microprocessors. Fujitsu notebooks will come with mobile Pentium P6100 and Core i5-460M CPUs. The NH570 may also be shipped with Core i7-640M, while the A530 may include mobile Celeron P4600 or Core i5-560M. Both Fujitsu laptops use Intel HM55 chipset, and support up to 8 GB of memory. The A530/AH530 notebook has 15.6" display, and is offered only with integrated graphics. The NH570 "mobile cinema" laptop includes 18.4" display, and can be ordered with integrated Intel HD graphics or optional NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 1GB video card.
