Intel today expanded the Intel Pentium M processor and Intel Celeron M processor families with products aimed at the notebook, subnotebook and tablet PC segments that represent small mobile PCs typically weighing around three pounds.
Intel’s new offerings include the Intel Pentium M processor Low Voltage 738, the Intel Pentium M processor Ultra Low Voltage 733 and 723, and the Intel Celeron M processor Ultra Low Voltage 353. All four processors are based on Intel’s mobile micro-architecture and built using Intel’s high-volume 90-nanometer process technology.
The Low Voltage and Ultra Low Voltage Intel Pentium M processors, in conjunction with the Intel 855 chipset family and the Intel PRO/Wireless network connection family, are components of Intel Centrino mobile technology for subnotebooks and tablet PCs.
Low Voltage Pentium M Processors
These new low voltage Intel Pentium M processors feature such architectural enhancements as a 2 MB Level 2 cache, a power-optimized 400-MHz bus, enhanced data prefetcher and enhanced register access manager for fast execution of instructions at low power.
These new processors also include Intel Speedstep Technology, which is designed to help optimize application performance and power consumption to enable extended battery life.
The Intel Celeron M processor Ultra Low Voltage 353 offers users a balanced level of mobile-optimized processor technology for small mobile PCs. Intel Celeron M processors are compatible with the Intel 855 chipset family as well as the Intel 852GM chipset to enable scalable platforms for system manufacturers.
