Intel Sonoma Chipset Upgrades Centrino

Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: PC / Laptop

DescriptionToday Intel officially released the Sonoma chipset, which is the next generation of its Centrino mobile platform. Now, don’t be confused if you don’t see Sonoma stickers on the 150 new laptops based on the technology that are set to be released this year (of which 80 launched today). Sonoma is the codename for the updated product, but it will still ship under the Centrino brand. Looking at the upgrade, it appears to be a winner. Sonoma includes a 533MHz front-side bus, the new Alviso chipset (which brings dual-channel DDR support, PCI Express, and 7.1 Dolby surround sound), as well as the Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG technology which provides built-in 802.11a/b/g support. The new chipset is up for some competition from AMD’s Turion 64 Mobile Processor.

i’ve had my laptop for about 4-5 months and its already outdated. sad.

lol. Im waiting until I’m sure that my new laptop will last at least 6 months (hopefully a year) without being too outdated..  Right now I have one with a fried MOBO =(  But it is a piece of crap.  May try to sell it for parts…
