Intel says more than 200 Centrino Duo-branded notebook designs will integrate the mobile Core 2 Duo this year, although it doesn't say how many will initially be available. The notebooks will feature the same 945 Express chipset and Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network card as their predecessors running Core Duo chips. According to previous reports, the Core 2 Duo is little more than a drop-in upgrade for current Centrino Duo laptops, so notebooks manufacturers should be able to slip the new chips in their existing designs.
This easy upgrade path could help speed up adoption of the Core 2 Duo. In fact, if Taiwanese rumors are to be believed, Intel plans to ramp production of Core 2 Duo processors until the original Core Duo chips are reduced to only 10-15% of the company's mobile shipments by the first quarter of next year.
