Intel's Huron River notebook platform due early 2011

updated 07:55 am EST, Fri February 12, 2010

Huron River to replace Calpella next year

Early details have surfaced of the timetable and features of Intel's replacement for Calpella, the chipset that drives mobile Core i3, i5 and i7 processors. Already known under its Huron River codename, the new platform is now expected in early 2011. It will still be built on a 32 nanometer process but will recognize processors built on the Sandy Bridge architecture, which should have both much faster integrated graphics, support for 1,600MHz DDR3 memory and unspecified higher clock speeds.

Dual- and quad-core chips, including some ultra-low voltage models, are still expected with features like Turbo Boost and Hyperthreading making their way into most of the Sandy Bridge designs.

The parts will still come in dual- or quad-core variants and will have the option of an Intel-made WiMAX chipset as well as Wireless Display. The expected 6-series Mobile Express chipset will, however, be the first to carry an Intel-made Bluetooth chipset.

If the Huron River platform follows the typical Intel release pattern, the desktop variant of Sandy Bridge will be available first, in late 2010. Most notebook manufacturers would adopt Huron River and mobile Sandy Bridge almost immediately after launch. [via Fudzilla]
