Improvements to the article[edit]

Obviously the text introducing the subject should be improved, three separate sentences and the following paragraph, aren’t well written. I’d like to improve it, but I’ve encountered some problems:

  • The page covering the CULV platform on Intel’s website, which I mentioned under the External Links heading, doesn’t provide much information. For example it doesn’t say anything about what chipset accompanies the platform. If I’m correct it’s the Intel GS45 Express chipset, but if there’s no source I can’t mention it.
  • There is a press release on Intel’s website, but just like the previously mentioned page on the Intel website it doesn’t even mention the name ‘CULV platform’, but speaks about ultra-thin laptops. If Intel doesn’t use the abbrevation CULV anywhere, maybe we should change the name of this article? Was ‘CULV’ the code name for the platform while it was under development, and is it no longer used by Intel since then? Searching for ‘culv’ on Intel’s website gives no result at all.
  • The press release does clearly communicate the goals of the platform however: deliver very thin laptops providing long battery life at mainstream prices, while maintaining a good balance between performance and good battery life. This article doesn’t make that clear enough.

Hopefully anyone can assist in finding good sources to provide better information? AlexanderVanLoon (talk) 13:03, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Added tables showing available processors[edit]

I just added tables showing the available processors for the CULV platform. I got the information from a page on the Intel website, which I added under the External Links heading. The tables are inspired by the various lists of Intel processors on Wikipedia:

I took the information from these tables and modified it for consistency, and corrected some of the information by using the information from Intel’s website:

As you can see some information about the SU2700 is missing on Intel’s website. Also, according to the price information there the SU3500, the SU9300 and the SU9400 all cost $262, I’m not sure how well this corresponds with reality. And I’m not sure how extensive the information provided in the tables should be. The lists of Intel processors on Wikipedia are very extensive, but should we still mention the socket in the table here if they all share the same socket anyway? I thought there was no need to include sSpec numbers and part numbers because they probably aren’t useful to know for the majority of people, so I left them out. If anyone thinks otherwise, please say so. AlexanderVanLoon (talk) 12:38, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

New CPUs[edit]

Intel is going to release seven new dual-core CULV in Q4:

SU2500 SU2600 SU4100 (1.3GHz, 2MB L2 cache) SU4500 SU4700 SU7300 (1.3GHz) SU7800

Unfortunately there isn't much information around at the present time. Will update the data as soon as I have more information on the new CPUs. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:31, 26 August 2009 (UTC)


I rollbacked the edit that added {{db-spam}}; speedy deletion isn't appropriate here, but I want to be clear that I'm only offering an opinion on the speedy. - Dank (push to talk) 14:26, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Lacking performance info[edit]

Please include the (very important) performance information. (Benchmark.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:52, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia doesn't benchmark things. That information wouldn't even add anything; relative performance scales directly with clock frequency in almost every case. Grant (talk) 22:53, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

List of PCs[edit]

Why does this page just have a list of a bunch of different CULV laptops? Is there another site that I'm just missing about uFC-BGA 956? The Socket P page, for comparison, lists all sorts of relevant tech specifications. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sir Grant the Small (talkcontribs) 22:56, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

nVidia competition[edit]

I don't understand why nVidia's Ion platform graphics chips are mentioned as a CULV "competing platform" — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lonwolve (talkcontribs) 07:40, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
