Intel intros budget and low voltage Pentium Ms

— 3:02 AM on April 7, 2004

Intel has added a couple of new processors to its mobile Pentium M line.

Intel's new offerings are the Low Voltage Intel® Pentium® M processor at 1.30 GHz, the Ultra-Low Voltage Intel Pentium M processor at 1.10 GHz, the Intel Celeron® M processor at 1.40 GHz and the Ultra Low Voltage Intel Celeron M processor at 900 MHz. All four processors are based on Intel's micro-architecture designed specifically for mobile computing and built using the company's 0.13-micron manufacturing technology.
And so the wait for Dothan continues.

Although the new chips aren't based on Intel's upcoming Pentium M core, it's encouraging to see a few more options for the low voltage and ultra low voltage crowd. The Thermal Design Power (TDP) for low voltage Pentium M chips is only 12 watts and ultra low voltage chips come in at only 7 watts—pretty impressive considering that the TDP for standard Pentium M chips is 24.5 watts.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
