Intel announced its ‘Moorestown’ system-on-a-chip platform for UMPCs and internet tablets back in April this year, but it kept the details close to its chest. Now they’ve leaked out.
Moorestown will comprise two chips: the SoC, codenamed ‘Lincroft’, and an I/O part called ‘Langwell’. According to a report on Japanese-language site PCWatch, Lincroft has an integrated memory controller that connects to a bank of DDR 3 memory.
When it first mentioned Moorestown, Intel said the platform’s processor would contain other components, and in addition to the memory controller, Lincroft will also sport its own GPU.
