Dell, Asus, Toshiba Embrace Intels Quad-core Core i7 Mobile Chips

by Jeffrey Burt
 
At the 2009 Intel Developer Forum, Intel executives unveiled the "Clarksfield" family of quad-core chips, which will bring the "Nehalem" architecture to the mobile space for the first time. The three new chips—the Core i7-920XM Extreme, Core i7-820QM and Core i7-720QM—are aimed at the high-end space, for use in systems that will be used primarily by gamers and PC enthusiasts. The chips will come with such features as Turbo Boost, which enables the dynamic scaling of a chip's speed depending on demand; Hyper-Threading; and an integrated memory controller. Dell, Asustek Computer and Toshiba have already rolled out systems that are powered by the new mobile Core i7 chips. In early 2010, Intel will release "Arrandale," its first 32-nanometer mobile chip for mainstream systems.
