Consumer Ultra Low Voltage CPU Introduced by Intel in July 2009

After Success of the Atom Processor, for the consumer who wants a little more power and style than the Regular Processors, Intel’s Consumer Ultra Low Voltage Processors - CULV Chips - are here.

Intel recently announced several new chips , one being the 1.3 GHz SU2700 for Laptops. The CULV chip features a thermal design power 10W, which compares favorably to the standard volt processors TDP of 25W to 35W. Such chips are suitable for laptops 0.8- to 1-inch thick, weighing 2 to 5 pounds that are quieter and typically have longer battery life (Intel estimates over 7 hours with a 57WHr battery) at mainstream system price points.

Intel also introduced the new GS40 chipset to go along with the new ULV chips, which features an HDMI output – which should be put to good use thanks to the added power of the Core 2 Duo that simply isn’t part of the Atom’s arsenal.
