Velocity Micro Announces Integration of Intel® Centrino® Duo Processor Technology

Richmond, VA — May 9, 2007 — Velocity Micro, the premier independent builder of custom, high performance computers and workstations, announced today its new range of Intel® Centrino® Duo processor based notebooks. Velocity Micro customers will note increased wireless performance, clearer video playback, and extended battery life compared to previous Intel ® Centrino® processor technology-based platforms, placing Velocity Micro notebook PCs at the head of an elite class.

“The next-gen Intel® Centrino® Duo rocessor technology will take our notebook PCs where Velocity Micro always strives to be—the next level,” said Velocity Micro President and CEO Randy Copeland. “Our customers will soon experience the luxury of a Velocity Micro notebook loaded with advanced Intel® technology. We could not be more excited about what this innovation means for us and for Intel.”

The Intel® Centrino® Duo processor technology includes several advances from the previous platform. One anticipated example is users can watch an entire movie without depleting the battery in the notebook. This advancement is credited to the super fast 800 MT/s front side bus featuring Dynamic Front Side Switching technology ensuring the Intel Core 2 Duo processor functions at optimal speed while at the same time conserving power to decrease battery drain. The Intel® Centrino® Duo processor technology with the optional next-gen WiFi adapter also speeds web browsing up to five times at double the range, meaning you can download that movie too. For clearer video, the new Intel® 965 Express chipset and GMA X3000 graphics promise clarity twice what the previous platform could provide.

"Velocity Micro is taking advantage of the energy-efficient performance of the Intel Centrino Duo Mobile processor technology to bring to both its gaming and mainstream consumer customers an incredible PC experience," said Erik Reid, marketing director, Intel Mobile Platforms Group

With the new generation of Intel Centrino processor technology at hand, Velocity Micro looks to continue to push the innovation envelope. Velocity Micro customers can expect to see the new Intel Centrino Duo processor technology in laptops as soon as the end of May.
