Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

Well it's nice to see that Neoware has got it right by heading towards the Intel CPU and chipset track with the new 2nd Generation Thin Client Laptop (M2000) that should be out by the end of the year, and if there is going to be an even sharper focus by Intel in reducing the power consumption on the newer CPU's this has got to be good for any Thin Client manufacturers who are aligned with Intel?

Although from an Australian or European perspective I'm not too sure if WiMax is really that relevant anymore as we have quite plentiful mobile bandwidth via 3G these days?

New Intel SoC to slash UMPC idle power

Intel has made major promises concerning future ultra-mobile PC (UMPC), mobile internet device (MID), and notebook computer technologies. A new UMPC SoC (system-on-chip) will slash idle power consumption to 1/100th of the original, while next year's version of Centrino Duo technology will integrate WiMAX into notebooks, among other claimed developments.

In a Sept. 19 keynote, attendees at this week's Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco learned that during the first half of 2008, Intel will deliver "
Menlow," based on the company's 45 nm Hi-k microarchitecture-based processor, and the accompanying chipset code-named "Poulsbo." This will deliver 10x lower idle power consumption compared to the first UMPCs, plus optional standardized WiFi, 3G, and WiMAX capabilities.

Andand Chandrasekher, Intel senior VP and general manager of the Ultra Mobility Group, said, "Users want the full Internet to be delivered to them wirelessly and in their pocket." Noting that Menlow is the first platform designed from the ground up for UMPCs and MIDs, he added that the next-generation, code-named "Moorestown," will reduce idle power consumption by an additional 10x compared to Menlow, resulting in a 100x reduction relative to
Intel's original UMPC platform.
