Very small chips


Intel was kind enough to show us how small the new Diamondville and its chipset actually are. These parts are the core of the Menlow platform.

The biggest one in the picture is Napa, platform of 2006 and you can see mobile CPU with Northbridge and Southbridge packed in incredibly big chips. This was usually something that you would found in notebooks of 2006.

In 2007 it was time for Santa Rosa as Asus Eee PC and similar divides got the much smaller package with way smaller CPU die and packaging and much smaller chipset parts.

The 2008 brings the Menlow platform that will be the heart of Atom Centrino branding. The top small chip is Diamondville while the second chip below is the chipset that includes graphics. You can clearly see the big improvement over the last two years.
