Intel remains involved in preparing Core i7 versions for ultraportables, but adoption by Apple is already ruled out

In February, we released a rumor that Intel would be preparing a low voltage edition of the Core i7 for ultralight notebooks such as the MacBook Air, running at a maximum of 1.4 GHz but with support for up to four logical processing cores, not to mention technology Turbo Boost, which increases the frequency of CPU operation by shutting down idle cores. Today the Fudzilla stated that this special edition will be available in two versions: one with 1.33GHz (expandable to 2.4GHz) and another with 1.46GHz (expandable to 2.53GHz).

However, unfortunately Apple has been on the side of companies that will probably ignore these releases for use on machines like the MacBook Air, as has been proven with the launch of their new professional notebook models. Due to the 13-inch model of the MacBook Pro not having space for a dedicated GPU (which suggests that the Air has much less), Apple maintained the Core 2 Duo and extended the integrated graphics performance with the new GeForce 320M, from NVIDIA.

Apparently, the same is true of all ultralight notebooks that don't want to abandon solutions like this to appeal to Intel's integrated graphics. Although this judicial war with NVIDIA could end at once
