Looking ahead: Core Duo processor i3/i5/i7
Expectations index: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
In September of this year’s Intel Developer Forum IDF, on the new architecture based on the mobile version of Nehalem Core i7 processors to meet formally with you. The industry’s major PC makers also have a positive response followed by the introduction of configuration i7 quad-core processor notebooks. Acer Aspire 5720G battery Currently on the market already has Alienware, Shenzhou, ASUS, Lenovo and Asus and other vendors of products, of which 6999 yuan’s Shenzhou sought after by many big A, quad-core notebook lethal evident.
The first announced quad-core processor, Core i7 using 45nm technology, including those for mainstream notebook Core i7-720QM, i7-820QM-oriented high-performance gaming notebook Core i7-920XM.
In 2010, Intel will release the next generation of R & D, code-named “Arrandale” mobile processors, including Core i3, i5, and i7 series.Acer Aspire 6920G battery In fact, Intel in the future will be the main push “Core (Core)” brand. In other words, the future of the notebook, the Core i3, i5, and i7 will cover a variety of price segment, will also become the basis for the notebook market growth.
Arrandale next release quad-core mobile processor integrated CPU and graphics processing functions, using 32-nanometer manufacturing process as well as the second-generation high-K metal gate transistors. The Arrandale processor will be equipped with a 32nm architecture of Westmere display CPU and Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi battery a 45nm Core and North Bridge controller ICs.
Has released the mobile version of Core i7 processors with Core-frequency acceleration technology, Hyper-Threading Technology, up 3 8MB cache, integrated memory controller, built-in SSE4.2 instruction set and many other technological advantages. Evaluation data, and compared to the previous quad-core processor, i7 quad-core processor performance than previous Intel’s Q9000 series quad-core processors out of a lot stronger.
Can be expected is that the notebook market next year, will enter “i” times, whether it is 3D gaming audio-visual entertainment, or personality style, or a mobile office, will have “i” presence.
Prospect 3: CULV thin in this
Expectations index: ★ ★ ★ ★
CULV thin and light notebook market in 2009 has won a lot of attention is Acer Aspire 5910G battery on the market this year, one of the few bright spots. With the ultra low voltage Intel i5, i7 release of new processors, CULV platform, the performance of thin and light notebooks will also be further enhanced.
CULV notebooks are thin and light, portable, long battery life features. CULV generally control the weight of the notebook 2 kg within easy life can be 6-8 hours, some products can reach 10-12 hours.
On the other hand, CULV there is still thin and light notebook is slightly lower performance, the game can not satisfy the entertainment demands. However, the reason was able to CULV popular not because of performance, if the properties of stem Mody asked not to buy the mainstream dual-core alone has displayed in this?
May be other hand, is always hope that all the needs of the user can achieve the same product, at the same time will naturally be thin to meet the required performance. As already mentioned, with the release of the performance i5 processor, CULV thin and light notebook is bound to improve performance after use. In addition, CULV notebook to join one of the graphics card is also a trend, in fact, this year’s CULV related products have been on the market. In 2010, the market may appear more noticeable CULV thin in this unique mix of uses, which will Acer Aspire D150 battery become one of the factors attracting users.
From the use of point of view, the accelerated pace as society need to carry laptop users who travel extensively, more and more of the lightweight nature of these users will naturally be very high demands on the battery time to time and overall performance requirements are not reduced.
Prices, this year the mainstream notebook CULV in between 4,000 yuan to 7,000 yuan next year also there will be no major changes.
On the other hand, there are a lot of people are worried, CULV access to this notebook will step behind in the dust, there are a number of emerging brands or cottage manufacturers have begun to set foot CULV thin book, some people worry that the market would be do “stinky.” In fact, this concern is dispensable, because the key to look at the upstream chip manufacturers, as long as Intel and PC makers can be a good control over big, CULV market still has very good prospects.
It can be expected that next year’s CULV thin this will be more intense competition in the market, Intel released a new generation of low-voltage processors in the overall performance, power and endurance to continue to meet the needs of users, thin upper further enhanced. In addition, AMD has also greatly push the Neo low-voltage processors, the same face is thin and light notebook market, so next year will be more intense competition in the market, the outlook is no doubt that there are PC makers say, CULV thin and light notebooks have Acer Aspire 8930 battery occupied the notebook out of a total cargo share of 30 percent next year, this figure would be even higher.
Looking 4: One Computer
Expectations index: ★ ★ ★ ☆
One computer is not a new type of PC, but only a new type of PC, but not until the second half of 2008, the market is really concerned about being PC manufacturers, and some pick up in 2009.
ZDC provides the number of shows in 2008, only one or two PC vendors have introduced integrated computer products, but in the second quarter of 2009, the introduction of integrated manufacturer of computer products has reached 17, the fourth quarter of 2009, has reached 19, including Lenovo, Apple, Shenzhou, HP, Dell, Founder, Acer aspire 9500 battery Sony, Haier brand. The market in 2010 to launch the number one computer PC makers may not be substantial growth, as almost all manufacturers have now begun to move into this area. However, the number of products on one computer will be large-scale development.
From the number of products show that, in July 2008, the market only about 40 variety. By the fourth quarter of 2009, the market has been the number one PC over 100 models, is three to four times a year ago. This also shows more and more companies to follow up this market.
Concerned about the degree of respect, from July 2008 to the present, one concern has been on the computer on the rise. One computer users have a better understanding of have begun.
Speaking of users, one computer’s current location is mainly for the young and trendy high-end users, this part of the user is Acer Aspire 5920 battery also relatively higher incomes, such as private entrepreneurs, corporate owners, the pursuit of personal fashion young users.
In fact, apart from this part of the user, one computer there to open up a larger market. Educational and government agencies is the potential market, many government and educational institutions are currently still using the old desktop machine, because who is not willing to take the initiative to replace the peace Cou can use. If the PC makers to enter this market, there must be new discoveries.
On the other hand, one can actually facing the computer game market, game computer users do not consider buying one because of its lack of expandability, they still prefer to mix themselves with better performance of accessories to achieve satisfactory results. So for this part is used for the provision of adequate performance as long as the problem can be solved. In fact, PC makers have already launched a high-end gaming PCs together.
In addition, we even think that one computer in the rural market has great potential to one computer as a dowry is a good idea. In fact, some manufacturers have already put into action.
Future prospects of integrating the computer is owned character of its own decision. One computer integrated host configuration, on the whole is only a display. The benefits of this design is a small footprint, no longer have many data lines wound. From the exterior point of view, an integrated computer design fashion simple, integrated desktop computers are better than good-looking appearance. From the application point of view, one in fact to have an ordinary desktop computers owned by all of the functions, applications and more convenient operation.
The existing main problem is price, another one computer user awareness is not enough. Overall, with the development of related technologies, integrated computer next year, will further reduce the price of the product performance and design will be further enhanced.
An international PC makers head home computer even said that one computer in 2010 it is expected to have split the desktop world, but in the long run, one computer may eventually become a traditional desktop’s demise.
