There is no stopping Intel Corp's next wave of laptops, connected mobile devices and processors. The company recently defined its new roadmaps for its Core and Atom chips with "strong" industry collaboration, according to Intel executive vice president, Sean Maloney.

In his opening keynote speech at Computex in Taipei, Maloney enumerated the company's development plans as it catches-up with existing market trends in mobile systems, beginning with the launching of "Ultrabook," reputedly designed as a new category of mainstream thin and light mobile computers.

Maloney: The changes Intel is making to its roadmaps, together with strong industry collaboration, will bring about an exciting change in personal computing over the next few years.

According to Maloney, by end-2012, Intel would have succeeded in shifting 40 percent of their consumer laptops to Ultrabook, which he described as the first of an emerging new breed of no-compromise computers that will increasingly combine best-in-class performance, improved responsiveness and security in a thin and elegant form.

He also added, Intel is accelerating the Atom processor roadmap to produce one-process-generation per year, enabling a wider range of optimized solutions for multiple market segments.

Maloney reiterated the company's efforts to accelerate the pace of innovation for Intel Atom processor-based SoCs for netbooks, smartphones, tablets and other companion devices. He highlighted the company's next-generation fanless netbook platform, codenamed "Cedar Trail" and a range of new Atom processor-based tablets available today. Maloney also introduced the "Medfield" tablet reference design for sub-9mm designs that weighs less than 0.68kgs and supports a choice of operating systems.

"Computing is taking many forms," said Maloney. "Technology innovation is a catalyst, and we believe the changes Intel is making to its roadmaps, together with strong industry collaboration, will bring about an exciting change in personal computing over the next few years."
