Quad-core mobile chips

On the heels of its recent Santa Rosa mobile architecture launch, Intel this weekend touted its next-generation quad-core mobile chips, which is expected to be available next year. At the company's Intel's Developer Forum conference in Beijing, the world's largest chipmaker said that the new technology will be used in high-level gaming and high-end, performance-oriented. The extra processing power, however, will come at the expense of battery life and likely won't find its way into mainstream business notebooks for sometime, the company said. "You'll see it at the high end, but I don't see it running so fast into the mainstream because I don't believe there will be enough threaded applications that will justify the trade-offs," says Mooly Eden, vice president and general manager of Intel's mobile platform group.

The quad-core chip will will likely differ in some way from Intel's current desktop and server quad-core chips, which strap together two dual-core dies inside a single-chip package, according to IDG News Service; however, the company did provide any further details.
