Intel Diamondville specs

Presenting at Mobility Summit 2008, Intel has revealed fresh details on its upcoming Diamondville CPUs, intended for low-cost notebooks and compact desktops. The design is only single-core, but supports technologies such as hyperthreading, and is being built with a 45nm process like Intel's more powerful Penryn chips. This helps the processor achieve an incredibly low thermal design power rating, at a mere 4W. Heat is dissipated passively.

The first two chips are being named the 230 and 270, and have a 533MHz front-side bus, 512KB of L2 cache, and a 1.6GHz top speed. They should launch in May or June of this year; it has also been rumored that the company is working on a dual-core Diamondville chip, which may be called the Celeron 300. Diamondville processors are associated with Intel's Shelton platform. [via Notebook Italia]
