Ultimate UltraMobile



On April 5th, Intel announced the U7600 and U7500e ultra-low power versions of its Core 2 Duo processor, designed for small form-factor mini-notebook, sub-notebook, and slate/tablet notebooks. The U7600 is clocked at 1.2 GHz and U7500 at 1.06 GHz and sip just 10 watts. Gateway is using the chips in its E-100M ultraportable PC.

Next week at its Intel Developer Forum conference in Beijing, Intel is rumored to launch a new UMPC platform called ‘McCaslin’ using a ‘Stealey’ microprocessor running at 600MHz or 800MHz and capable of supporting Microsoft’s Windows Vista OS.

Intel’s vision of future UltraMobile PCs goes beyond low power. Voice recognition, ultra-thin, touchscreen. No keyboard and wireless everything.
