4 to 8W CPU, dual or single core


Intel’s second generation low-cost platform codenamed Diamondville can be passively cooled. It comes in the second half of 2008 and it will help you create the ultimate silent machine.

It is based on a new 45nm CPU that comes as a single and dual core, and it targets the performance and power of basic PC and thin client market.


It has a lower Bill of Material cost compared to anything else Intel had in this range and the system can work even without a fan. The TDP of a CPU is from 4 to 8W. It will be ideal as a small form factor and we believe that Intel will attack VIA’s micro ATX with this platform.

The platform is powered by a 945GC chipset and it comes with PATA and SATA support, DirectX 9 integrated graphics, six to eight USB slots and it supports SSD NV RAM memory.

It will sport a Vista Basic logo and it is scheduled for the second half of 2008.
