Digitimes is revealing some new information on the version of Intel's Nehalem architecture that will find its way into the mobile space.  The Calpella platform will include the Clarksfiled processor (Nehalem-based) will of course implement a DDR3 memory controller into the core while the Auburndale chip will add integrated graphics support as well.

Other features include a/b/g/n WiFi support and a single chip southbridge to handle storage, I/O, etc.

Intel's next-generation notebook platform (Calpella) is
scheduled to launch in the third quarter of 2009. As with other Nehalem
generation products, Capella will abandon the current northbridge and
southbridge chipset arrangement and transfer many typical northbridge
components to the CPU package. A single integrated chipset codenamed
Ibex Peak-M will coordinate other features on the motherboard,
according to sources at notebook makers.

Ibex Peak-M
will support Intel's next-generation notebook CPUs (Clarksfield and
Auburndale), both of which include an on-die DDR3 memory controller.
Auburndale will also have a graphics core integrated in the CPU package.

The Calpella platform will support Wi-Fi a/b/g/n (Puma Peak) or WiMAX (Kilmer Peak) wireless modules.

In
additional news, Intel will cease supply of Atom N270 processors at the
end of second-quarter 2009, however the company has so far not released
any information regarding the development of a next-generation Atom
processor.
