Intel on Monday announced the immediate availability of 11 new mobile microprocessors, including a market-leading Pentium 4-M chip that runs at 2.2 GHz. The chips are designed for every type of mobile computer, including full-sized, mid-sized, and sub-notebooks. Some of the chips include low-voltage and ultra-low-voltage Pentium III-M designs that will power first-generation Tablet PC devices as well. On the low end, the company has also introduced new Mobile Celeron-M chips for value-priced notebooks.
"Intel continues to deliver industry-leading processors to all mobile market segments, from the ultra-portable business productivity device to a thin-and-light digital media entertainment PC," says Don MacDonald, the director of marketing at Intel's Mobile Platforms Group. "Every day, Intel-based mobile PCs improve the lives of business users and consumers--from an employee taking digital notes on a Tablet PC during a multi-hour meeting, to parents sharing digital photos of their first-born child over a long dinner. High-performance, low-power systems bring a new world of computing to your fingertips."
Intel's new mobile processors include the 2.2 GHz Pentium 4-M, with a 400 MHz bus; 1.33 and 1.26 GHz Pentium III chips; a 1 GHz Low-Voltage Pentium III-M, 866 and 850 MHz Ultra-Low-Voltage Pentium III-M chips, and various Celeron-M designs running at 1.8, 1.7, and 1.6 GHz, and 733 and 700 MHz. Systems based on the new designs are available today from major PC makers such as Dell, HP, and Gateway.
