Intel Centrino Technology Explained

When you buy a Centrino laptop, you're getting a combination of features that give notebook PCs long battery life, wireless data access, and low-voltage processing power, all while focusing on making mobile computers thinner and lighter. But exactly what does that mean?

Did you know that Centrino is not just a processor? For a laptop to wear the Centrino badge, it must have a blend of three specific technologies that work together.

To know what Centrino is, is to first know what it is not. Did you know that Centrino is not just a processor? There is a general misconception that Centrino is in fact one of processors used in notebook PCs. For a laptop to wear the Centrino badge, it must have a blend of three technologies that work together, one of which is the processor. So what are these three technologies?

You now know the first technology, the processor. Currently, three processors are available in the Centrino lineup, Intel's Duo Core, Solo Core and older Pentium M processors are used because they use less power and give off less heat. The benefit? This allows notebook PC manufacturers to make smaller an thinner notebooks PCs because they can use items like smaller cooling fans to keep these powerful chips cool. Second is the chipset, think of a chipset as the glue that holds all the pieces together. With powerful and smarter chipset architecture, your laptop not only runs more efficiently, but includes powerful audio and video features. This makes Centrino technology very attractive for those who wish to enjoy music and video on their notebook PC. The third piece of the Centrino puzzle is wireless connectivity, also known as Wi-Fi. This allows you to browse the Internet, check your e-mail, log into home or business networks and more, all without wires tethering you to your desk. Wi-Fi allows you to have wireless networking at speeds up to 54MBPS from your living room, the pool or at the office cafeteria so that you can work wherever you happen to be.

Below is an illustrated example of Centrino technology, using Intel's most powerful processor option, the Core Duo:


Most of your computer's power and speed comes from here. Until recently, a more powerful processor required more battery power and generated a lot heat. Processors used in Centrino laptop combine power and energy efficiency so you get the power you need and longer battery life, not to mention a much cooler laptop.
