Mobile Core i7, touch Win

MSI has confirmed the introduction of mobile Core i7 processors with several of its upcoming Windows 7-based notebooks . The company is set to ship 15.4- and 17-inch notebooks based on the Core i7 7200M, Core i7 8200M, and Core i7 920XM CPUs. Along with the high-end notebooks, MSI is also set to release a Wind U150 netbook featuring a touchscreen and Intel's next-generation Pine Trail platform.

Intel's "Calpella" platform improves upon the company's current Centrino components, while MSI expects the price-points to average between $600 and $900. The mobile Core i7 products will offer performance slightly scaled back from their desktop counterparts, but utilizing the same Nehalem architecture. The system is said to provide improved power management and a smaller, 32-nanometer process that runs at cooler temperatures.

The U150 features the next-generation Pine Trail Atom CPUs which are expected to be formally introduced at CES. The platform combines functions of both the CPU and GPU onto the same chip, reducing the overall footprint of the system while improving battery life and performance.

The 15.4- and 17-inch notebooks are expected to arrive around the same time Windows 7 comes to market. The U150 Wind could arrive as early as December, although Intel has not yet publicly committed to a time-frame for the Pine Trail launch. [via Gizmodo]
