Intel Fixed Sonoma Platform Glitch

Intel has found and fixed a glitch that pushed launch of the next-generation Centrino mobile CPU, code-named Sonoma, to the first quarter of 2005 and confirmed that some units would ship to PC makers in the fourth quarter of 2004. Intel still expects the chip’s volume roll-out to be in the first quarter. When Sonoma ships, it will still include a new chip set code-named Alviso as well as 802.11a/b/g wireless capability. Intel is promising that Alviso will improve portable audio — including providing Dolby 7.1 surround sound and noise cancellation for VoIP applications–and better graphics.
