This is in addition to the ‘Arrandale’ family of mobile processors, meant for use on netbooks – which features a GPU function along with two processing cores on the same chip resulting in a very power efficient chip. This chip will be based on a 45-nm production technology.

Intel is also moving its “Turbo Boost” technology into more Core i5. Turbo Boost speeds up and slows down individual cores to meet processing and power-efficiency needs, respectively.
