The product, which was code-named “Sonoma” prior to the launch, features new graphics and audio capabilities, faster processing, and greater security features. Intel forecast that the chipset would be available on more than 150 different computer models by year’s end. Computer maker Dell has already begun advertising new laptops equipped with the new technology.

Intel has sold more than US $5 billion worth of its Centrino chipsets since they were introduced in March 2003. The technology, designed for laptop computers, came with enhanced wireless Internet connectivity, which helped push the Wi-Fi (wireless fidelity) standard to the top of the industry agenda, as well as longer battery life.

Intel’s Israeli operations, which include four design centers and a manufacturing facility, lead Intel’s R&D for wireless technology. The company’s next major endeavor, a chipset to support the more advanced WiMax standard for wireless Internet, is also being spearheaded here. That technology is expected to be released some time next year.
