ZDNET and APCMAG are reporting some interesting details today from the Intel camp. One of the details surfacing is Intel Enhanced Dynamic Acceleration Technology (or EDAT for short), which will increase the clock speed of a single Intel Core 2 Duo core depending upon the load. If you are running a single threaded application, the new Intel Core 2 Duo will be able to clock down the core not being utilize while increasing the speed of the active core (like overclocking, but Intel says it's all part of their specification). Enhanced Dynamic Acceleration Technology will appear on Intel's Santa Rosa platform. Santa Rosa will also include draft 802.11n connectivity along with Intel Turbo Memory. This new mobile platform is expected by the end of June. On the other hand, ZDNET's report details a new mobile Internet device being manufactured by Intel that runs Linux. Intel calls this UMPC-like creation a MID, or Mobile Internet Device, and will have a small screen along with a dual-core processor running between 600MHz and 800MHz.
