INTEL UNVEILS A NEW LEAP FOR MOBILE WORK AND PLAY
SYDNEY, Australia, Jan. 18, 2006 –Intel Australia today showcased the Intel®
Centrino® Duo mobile technology for a new generation of laptops. The new platform
is aimed at advancing the emerging digital lifestyle at home, work and on the go. It
delivers breakthrough capabilities to make entertainment truly mobile for people on
the go and improves responsiveness and efficiency of mobile workers.
“Intel is focused on creating an innovative mobile computing platform that ushers in a
new era of working, playing and living,” said Kate Burleigh, national marketing
manager, Intel Australia. “The Intel Centrino Duo mobile technology platform creates
a new leap in how people work and play, taking advantage of a new generation of

The Intel Centrino Duo mobile technology is powered by the Intel® Core™ Duo
processor (formerly codenamed “Yonah”), Intel’s new, mobile dual-core processor
manufactured using the company’s leading 65nm process technology. It boasts a
unique design with two processors in a package roughly the size of a large postage
stamp, coupling new levels of performance with breakthrough energy-efficiency to
inspire innovative laptop and PC designs.
Intel Platform on the Go
Whether for the family taking movies, music and games on vacation, or a business
traveller always on the move, Intel Centrino Duo mobile technology delivers dramatic
performance improvements (more than 70 per cent1), while also reducing component
power up to 28 per cent1 over previous generations. The result enables increased
system responsiveness and improved battery life in a wide variety of innovative
As an ultimate on-the-go, all-in-one entertainment device, Centrino Duo mobile
technology features enhanced three-dimensional graphics (up to two times previous
generations), and the option to view high-definition (HD) TV. When enabled with

for Dolby* Digital. Using laptops based on Centrino Duo mobile technology, people
can immerse themselves more completely in music, games and HD movies and TV,
whether in the car, a coffee shop or on the plane.
The performance of the Centrino Duo mobile technology platform helps businesses to
be more responsive and productive as a result of better multitasking performance and
collaboration capabilities, including enabling voice and video over IP, and improved
battery life. The platform supports Intel® Active Management technology and Intel®
Virtualization technology, innovative silicon-based features for enhanced
manageability and bolstered security.
The small size of the platform components of Centrino Duo mobile technology
enables a wide variety of laptop sizes and innovative designs. The components also
enable a 1.2 watt-average platform power savings relative to previous generations,
making it more energy efficient.
The Centrino Duo mobile technology platform is comprised of the Intel Core Duo
Processor with dual-core processing and the mobile Intel® 945 Express Chipset
family. The platform also includes the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network
Connection, Intel’s next- generation wireless network connection advancing WLAN
