Intel’s May 9th launch of its long awaited Santa Rosa laptop chipset has resulted in a sizeable increase in laptop shipments, as reported by two of the world's largest contract laptop PC manufacturers, Compal Electronics Inc. and Quanta Computer Inc.

The new platform is offered as an upgrade to its fourth-gen Centrino wireless chip package under the Intel marketing names, Centrino Duo and Centrino Pro.

Compal reported that it shipped 1.77 million laptops in June, up from 1.65 million in May and 1.70 million in April, while leading laptop manufacturer Quanta reported laptop shipments of 2.8 million in June, compared to 2.4 million in May and 2.2 million in April. 

Intel also has reported that it expects an excess of 230 new laptop and desktop PCs to be built around the new Intel Centrino chipset this year.
