Intel will next year launch a low-cost desktop PC platform, it has been claimed. The news comes days after Asus said it’s developing a desktop version of its Eee PC ultra-compact laptop for a 2008 release.
Intel’s platform is codenamed ‘Shelton’ and is set to centre on a 45nm processors dubbed ‘Diamondville’, described by company presentation slides posted by Chinese-language site HKEPC as a “purpose-built low-cost processor”.
Shelton is being designed specifically for low-cost systems, but will have an appeal to companies making thin clients, the chip giant reckons.
