Leading companies will be offering Thunderbolt interface in their ultrabook models in Q2, 2012.
The leading companies Acer, Asus and Lenovo will most likely use Thunderbolt connectivity in their upcoming Ultrabook models based on Intel’s Ivy Bridge platform, in the second quarter of this year.
Ivy Bridge is already set to support by default USB 3.0 technology, which will be implemented in mid to high-end notebook models in 2012, and will become a standard by 2013. While the Thunderbolt technology is only expected to be seen in high-end notebooks, due to its cost of more than $20 USD.
Intel released N2600 and N2800 – its new low-power dual-core Atom processors for netbooks.
The N2600 and N2800 are Intel’s Third-generation Atom Cedar Trail processors with low-power designs intended for the netbook sector. Those 32nm processors offer 20% better performance compared to previous generation, full HD 1080p video Playback, up to 10 hours of battery life and weeks of standby at an affordable price.
The 1.6GHz N2600 and 1.86GHz N2800 dual-core processors work in harmony with the integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3600/ 3650 (which offer improved graphics performance up to 2X compared to the previous generations) and the Intel NM10 Express Chipset, featuring a small form factor package size which allows thinner netbook designs.
