Intel Details The Ultrabook Three Year Roadmap

/u46173/ux21.jpg" alt="Ultrabook" width="228" height="176" style="float: right;" />The x86 market isn’t in jeopardy by any stretch of the imagination, but Intel has seen the future, and mobile is where the moneys at. As tablets based on the arm architecture slowly evolve into convertible PC’s, Intel knows it will need to make laptops that are even more compelling if it’s going to survive the long haul. We know the Ultrabook is one of Intel’s most important strategies going forward, however in a blog post on Thursday they finally detailed the three year roadmap for what they believe is a completely new product segment, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Phase 1: The first generation of “Ultrabooks” will be based on Sandy Bridge, and using the new Ultra-Low Voltage processors similar to those found in the Macbook Air. Asus, Dell, Sony, and Hewlett-Packard have already announced their intention to build products based on these parts, and will be arriving en-mass this fall.

Phase 2: The second generation of Ultrabook will feature Intel’s Ivy Bridge CPU’s, and will feature more advanced I/O’s such as USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt. Expect to start seeing these ship by Summer 2012.

Phase 3: The third generation of Ultrabooks will be based on an upcoming micro-architecture currently code named Haswell. So far we don’t know much about Haswells capabilities, but expect it to up performance and battery life. Haswell is currently on the roadmap for a 2013 release.
