Intel adds low-end Pentium M to model number line

— 1:38 PM on July 15, 2004

Intel has quietly added a new Pentium M to its stable of mobile processors. The Pentium M 705 runs at 1.5GHz, but unlike other model number-bearing mobiles, the 705 is based on a 0.13-micron Banias core that has only 1MB of L2 cache; other Pentium M 7xx chips are based on a 0.09-micron Dothan core with 2MB of L2 cache. The 705 isn't identical to the Banias-core Pentium M 1.5GHz that Intel has been selling for some time, but apparently the architectural differences between the two are minor and don't affect performance.
