We already knew that Intel and OLPC had officially shook hands and agreed to work with one another in some elusive fashion, and now things are becoming a touch clearer. Reportedly, the chip maker will be designing a "new architecture specifically for the ultra-low cost laptop category," and if all goes as planned, it'll unveil the OLPC-ready CPU at next year's Intel Developer Forum in Shanghai. Apparently, Intel even looked into modifying current mobile chips rather than starting from scratch, but according to Mooly Eden, vice president and general manager of the mobile platforms group at Intel, the "small size, low cost and low power consumption required by the OLPC laptop made it unique enough to require a new architecture." The new microprocessors should be uncovered on April 2-3, 2008.
