Banias bladed, Dothan delayed

— 12:18 PM on August 6, 2003

TR reader Lo Yuk Fai pointed me to this article over at C|Net detailing HP's new low-power blade server that uses Intel's Pentium M processor. As we noted in our review of the Pentium M 1.4GHz, Intel's new mobile chip combines a number of swanky power saving technologies with impressive per-clock performance.

On a related note, The Inquirer is reporting that Intel's plans to move the Pentium M to a 0.09-micron manufacturing processes with the Dothan core have been pushed back one quarter until Q1 2004. It appears that heat dissipation issues are behind Dothan's delay, which is really a shame since I'm dying to see 2MB of L2 cache on a consumer-level chip.
