Lieberman Inc., a company known for its high-performance and nearly exclusive mobile and desktop systems, unveiled intention to announce mobile computers with two central processing units.
Currently no word is out on release dates, though the company’s CEO Miguel Liebermann is expected to unveil a new desktop machine and an all-new series of exclusive high-performance laptops and small-form factor computer series, possibly including a dual-processor notebook, at the company’s first public keynote in
The company did not unveil any details about its dual-CPU notebook design, not talking about prices or any other specifics of the product. In case the experiment with dual-processor laptop turns to be successful, this would open a new page in the history of mobile computers. So far notebooks makers managed to incorporate desktop processors into their computers, including such powerful as Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition, instead of specially tailored mobile parts. No system makers utilized x86 server chips for laptops.
Intel Pentium 4, Intel Pentium M, AMD Athlon XP and AMD Athlon 64 processors cannot work in configurations of 2 or more chips. For 2-way machines Intel and AMD supply Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron microprocessors that require special chipsets and special mainboards with pretty complicated layout and a number of layers inside the PCB. Dual-processor configurations also require very efficient cooling, as two chips generate more heat than one CPU.
Select journalists, reviewers and the general media is being invited on an limited basis for free pre-registration for the event, that should take place sometime between June-July after Intel's officially releases its new Grantsdale and Alderwood chipsets along with LGA775 packaging, the company said in its statement.
