Intel Calpella platform

Presenting at its Developer Forum in Shanghai, Intel has exposed some of the first details of "Calpella," its next-generation notebook platform. A successor to the company's still-unreleased Centrino 2 platform, Calpella systems are only expected to arrive in the third quarter of 2009, but should bring significant enhancements. Among these is the use of Intel's upcoming Nehalem processor architecture, which should in fact be available in an enhanced 32nm form by the time Calpella computers are on the market. The first Nehalem CPUs will use 45nm manufacturing.

Also promised is "revolutionary power management," which may be used to equip systems with 3.5GHz-capable WiMAX receivers, an alternative for the 2.5GHz frequency associated with Centrino 2 notebooks. Further tenets of Calpella are said to include "stunning new visual experiences," but Intel is not clear on what this may mean.

    higher pixel density

    A stunning new visual experience would be a higher pixel density on the LCD or OLED screen. IBM had 200dp in the labs a couple years ago, the apple OS has upgraded to be able to handle it, now all that's left is for everyone to catch up with what's possible, and for Intel to make money on it. All other things being equal, it looks like the buying spree just after Christmas of 2009 could be a great time to replace your existing laptop.
