Centrino 2 Mid July

Despite Intel's claims that Centrino 2's official appearance is due in August, some of the company's notebook processors and platform will appear in mid-July, according to reports. The chipmaker is now anticipated to launch all its mainstream mobile processors, including 2.53GHz and 2.8GHz full-power chips as well as 2.26GHz, 2.4GHz, and 2.53GHz low-power models, on July 14th. Mobile chipsets for notebooks using dedicated graphics will also be available at the same time.

However, the launch of some components is still expected no earlier than August and includes both Intel's own-brand 802.11n Wi-Fi and WiMAX chipsets as well as mainboards with integrated graphics. Ultra low-voltage processors are still planned for September.

The longer delays aren't believed to universally affect the launch of all Centrino 2 systems; some manufacturers, including Apple, have typically chosen third-party wireless chipsets such as those from Atheros or Broadcom to equip their systems.
