Where did the pic come from? It was an Intel-only conference I believe.
(I'd like to see original to do a close-up)
And how do you know it's Medfield?

Chippy.

Well it would fit with the rumour that the "first N9" is going to be one with no physical keyboard.

THis isn't the N9. Unless you want to wait for very late 2011. Medfield isn't in production until then. It's likely just a demostrator from first silicon samples.

hate to spam the thread, but i very highly doubt that they are waving preprod.fab on stage a few wks before MWC. call it good timing if you want, but i dont see intel doing anything but trynna get chips out asap.


not trynna link this device to nokia, at all. personally i dont think this device has ANYTHING to do with them however nokia has been working on a mfld device since at least september of '10, which i would then say was preprod.fab ... 6mos thereafter tho, i would think that they would be ready to announce/release. im just not ready to say that this has much to do with nokia other than the meego OS ... and even then :/

I highly doubt intel would have a nokia prototype in their possession, let alone be waving it around on stage at a sales conference.

And Intel has had quite a bit of history with showing MeeGo and Moblin very early on these Atom and what not protos so i don't think this got anything to do with Nokia.

This is the step that matches ARM's power consumption while idle?
Next gen is the one that'll match ARM's power consumption during operation, right?

no, moorestown was idle sipping ... medfield/penwell is power/performance matching.


link: http://www.reuters.com/article/2010/...67N0NI20100824

Aug 24 (Reuters) - The power usage of Intel's (INTC.O) next generation wireless chip will equal processors based on designs by rival ARM (ARM.L), and the U.S. firm expects to pull away after that, its technology chief said on Tuesday.

"With (our) Moorestown processor we equal them on standby power, in the next generation Medfield we will equal them on active power," Justin Rattner, Intel's Chief Technology Officer, told Reuters in an interview.

"I expect us to just pull away after that because we have a fundamental technology advantage, which they don't have," he said in an interview on the sidelines of a news conference opening Intel's joint research centre with Nokia (NOK1V.HE) in Northern Finland.

Analysts have previously said Intel's chip-and-chipset platforms will be too power-hungry for portable consumer electronics and cellphones, when compared with rival platforms based on ARM architecture.

Battery life -- hurt most by large screens and powerful processors -- is one of the most crucial metrics in the phone industry.
