AMD, having annoyed tech taxonomists everywhere by launching its Athlon Neo chipset for the 'ultrathin' category of notebooks (cheaper than an ultraportable, more highly specced than a netbook), already has Intel snapping at its heels.
According to our sister publication News.com, Chipzilla is prepping a version of its Core architecture for the same market segment. Sources claim a 'tweaked' version of Intel's existing ultra-low-voltage processors will target notebooks that are less than one inch thick, and peg the dimensions of the mysterious new chipset at 22mm x 22mm.
We have, naturally, asked Intel for comment, but have not received any at the time of writing. Sounds about right, though.
