Intel launches low-power mobile processors

— 4:48 AM on January 31, 2001

PC World and others are reporting that Intel has released their new low-power mobile processors.

Making their debut Tuesday are the 500-MHz Ultra Low Voltage Mobile Pentium III with SpeedStep, and a 500-MHz Ultra Low Voltage Mobile Celeron. IBM will use the PIII in its Thinkpad I-Series 1124.

The new PIII is "the lowest-power-consumption processor that has ever been built," says Frank Spindler, vice president and general manager of Intel's Mobile Platforms Group.

At least the FSB will be 100MHz. You can find pictures of Intel's mobile processor roadmap here and here. Expect to see faster Pentium III/Celeron processors that may even use less than 1W of power later this year.

Speaking of mobile processors, Toshiba has announced that their Satellite 2805 series of notebooks will feature the NVIDIA GeForce2 Go.
