Intel Introduces Integrated Chipset For Mobile PCs

Intel® 815EM Chipset Delivers Integrated Graphics Capabilities and Incorporates Intel Hub Architecture

AUCKLAND, Oct. 24, 2000 -- Intel New Zealand has introduced a new mobile chipset with integrated graphics specifically designed for today’s full-size and thin-and-light mobile Intel® Pentium® III and Celeron™ processor-based mobile PCs. This integrated mobile chipset offers great performance while lowering overall system cost.

The Intel® 815EM chipset integrates graphics functionality and options to utilise external AGP4X or AGP2X graphic controllers. This new chipset provides built in, cost effective support for Intel® SpeedStep™ technology featured in mobile Pentium III processors. By supporting Intel SpeedStep technology, notebook vendors using the new Intel 815EM chipset can lower manufacturing costs by eliminating external components.

“The Intel 815EM chipset enables stable and flexible mobile platforms that deliver new levels of performance,” said Scott Gilmour, General Manager, Intel New Zealand. “This new mobile chipset provides richer, robust 2-D and 3-D graphics, providing for a more compelling mobile PC experience.”

New Levels of Performance and Flexibility

The Intel 815EM chipset is based on Intel’s advanced Hub Architecture, featuring a new I/O Controller Hub (ICH2-M) for greater system performance and flexibility. The
ICH2-M enables an additional Universal Serial Bus (USB) port, includes a Local Area Network (LAN) Connect Interface, dual Ultra ATA/100 controllers for faster hard drive performance and support for Dolby* Digital full surround sound.

The Intel 815EM chipset is designed with integrated graphics and external AGP4X graphics that can be easily upgraded. The chipset’s graphics and AGP Memory Controller Hub features Intel graphics technology to create vivid 2-D and 3-D effects and images. The chip also features integrated hardware-assisted motion compensation to improve DVD video quality and a digital video-out port to connect mobile PCs directly to televisions or flat panel displays. In 1,000-unit quantities, the Intel 815EM chipset is priced at $47.50 each.

Intel, the world's largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products. Additional information about Intel is available at www.intel.co.nz .
