Intel Diamondville details revealed

By on
Intel may have rebuilt a reputation for their high performance chips over the past few years, but the company is now aggressively targeting the low-cost, low-power market as well with the forthcoming Diamondville platform which according to details leaked to DailyTech, could enable an entire system to operate within a 10W envelope.

The first Diamondville processors will arrive at the end of Q2, in the form of the single-core SC 230 and SC 270, intended for desktop and mobile systems, respectively. The chips will run at 1.6GHz, have 512KB L2 caches and a mere 4 to 8W thermal envelope. Though processor pricing hasn't yet been announced yet, the Diamondville chips are expected to make its way into systems in the $250 to $300 price range.
