Intel confirms Centrino 2 delayed

intel_centrino_2 If you’ve been holding off buying a new notebook until Intel releases its upcoming Centrino 2 (aka “Montevina”) platform you’re going to have to wait a little bit longer.

Intel spokesman Bill Kircos said in an email to PC Magazine, “there were two minor issues we found during final testing – one with our integrated graphic chipsets, which we have found a workaround for but need to re-screen our parts, and second around our wireless wi-fi chip, which was a paperwork and certification mistake we made.”

“Both of these led us to establishing a launch date for our mobile processors and discrete chipsets of the week of July 14th, and taking a couple of weeks to get the right readiness and volume for the rest of our components…We’re looking at early August for that.”

In case you’re not familiar with Centrino 2, it’s the next generation of Intel’s Centrion platform that will include support for WiMAX and 802.11n Wi-Fi.
