Asustek Computer and MicroStar International are expected to become one of the first suppliers of notebooks, which utilize Intel Corp.’s inexpensive processors in ultra-thin mobile computers.

MSI will showcase several new X-Slim series notebooks – X320, X340 and X600, which are on either the ultra low voltage version single-core Celeron, Core 2 Solo or Core 2 Duo central processing units at CeBIT trade-show in early March. Asustek also plans to showcase its notebooks based on the Intel consumer ultra low voltage (CULV) platform during the exhibition, reports DigiTimes web-site.

Asus and MSI are projected to make their products available in the channel before June this year, according to the report. In total, there are 20 CULV configurations in the works, based on unofficial information.

According to earlier report, package size of Intel’s new mobile processors foe CULV platform will be 22mm x 22mm, which is inline with processors inside Apple MacBook Air and other highly-portable thin laptops. The key difference between the forthcoming processors and those used in machines like Voodoo Envy is price: the new central processing units are projected to be very affordable.

Exact specifications of the new processors are not clear, but a media report, which cites sources close to Intel, claims that the chips will be a “tweak” of Intel’s existing ultra low voltage (ULV) microprocessors based on Core 2 micro-architecture, which may imply that the new processors will have thermal design power of just 10W, considerably lower compared to standard mobile Core 2 Duo chips.

Asus and MSI did not comment on the news-story.
