Desktop Core Duo Products Coming Soon

Internet News

Apple's new iMac may have been the first to use Intel's new power-efficient Pentium-M derived Core Duo on a desktop PC, but they certainly won't be the last. Joining AOpen with new Core Duo/Solo (and Pentium M) products are Asus, Shuttle, ECS, MSI and Gigabyte. It seems clear that Intel is successfully marketing the new low-power processors to the mainstream desktop/small server market. Thus far, however, Intel's major system integrator partners (Dell, HP, etc) are only featuring Core Duo processors in notebook PCs.

AOpen: i975Xa-YDG and i945GTm-VHL Core Duo motherboards; mini-PC MP945
Asus: N4L-VM DH Core Duo Viiv motherboard
Shuttle:

: PF23 Crossfire-compatible and 945G-M3 Viiv motherboards
MSI: P1-104A2M P-M server and 945GT Speedster-A4R P-M motherboard
