Intel’s New Pentium® III Processors For Mobile PCs

Intel’s New Pentium® III Processors Bring Top Performance And Optimal Battery Life To Mobile PCs

AUCKLAND, September 26, 2000 – Intel New Zealand today introduced new mobile Pentium® III processors with Intel® SpeedStep™ technology that bring higher performance and optimum battery life to mobile PCs. The world’s leading PC manufacturers are introducing full size as well as “thin and light” notebooks based on the new Intel processors, delivering as much as five to six hours of battery life depending on system configuration.

Intel SpeedStep technology is the industry’s first dynamic frequency and voltage scaling technology, automatically detecting whether the user is on AC power or battery power to deliver the optimum balance between performance and battery life. The new mobile Pentium III processor 850 MHz featuring Intel SpeedStep technology runs at 1.65 volts in Maximum Performance Mode and automatically drops to 1.35 volts and 700 MHz in Battery Optimised Mode. The mobile Pentium III processor 800 MHz with Intel SpeedStep technology runs at 1.65 volts in Maximum Performance Mode and automatically drops to 1.35 volts and 650 MHz in Battery Optimised Mode. Both consume less than two watts of power to enable longer battery life.

The company also introduced a mobile Intel® Celeron™ processor at 700 MHz, the top-performing processor for value mobile PCs. All three processors are available immediately.

“The world’s leading PC manufacturers are using Intel mobile technology to
provide users with the best combination of high performance and battery life for today’s advanced PC and Internet software,” said Scott Gilmour, General Manager, Intel New Zealand. “Intel SpeedStep technology is helping PC makers deliver near desktop-equivalent performance in smaller, lighter mobile PCs that run longer.”

The new processors also take advantage of Intel’s QuickStart technology, which automatically places the processor in a power-saving mode of below one-half watt when full performance is not required -- such as between key strokes -- and instantly returns to full performance when needed.
