Intel to add new hibernation features to PC chips

Michael Kan, IDG News Service | June 1, 2011
Intel is adding a pair of new features to chips used in notebooks and netbooks, one of which will allow the devices to turn on within five to six seconds after being put in hibernation mode.

At the same time, Intel already has several vendors like Fujitsu, Toshiba, Lenovo, NEC, Dell, ViewSonic, along with others developing tablets using the chip maker’s newest Atom processor, known as Oak Trail, announced in April. Thirty-five tablets will be released using the new chip, according to Intel.

Several of those tablets were shown at Computex running Android, Windows 7 and Intel’s own operating system, MeeGo. Intel has said all three operating systems will be able to run on the same tablet very soon.
