Intel has announced a new dual-core notebook CPU that can run on less than one watt of power.
The Ultra-low Voltage Core Duo CPU will be on the market during the second half of this year, and will consume "a median average" of just 0.75 watts, the company said in a statement.
Notebooks remain a very important market for Intel's chips, according to Chandrasekher, who claimed that, contrary to popular belief, notebook sales are still growing faster than those of gadgets such as mobile phones and Apple's iPod.
Intel has been surprised by competition from Taiwanese chip maker VIA Technologies in this market. VIA's low-power, low-cost C7-M CPU has found its way into handheld devices like the PaceBlade Easy Book E7.
