Intel Expands Intel® Centrino™ Mobile Technology
Intel Expands Intel® Centrino™ Mobile Technology Line; New Price Points And Systems Enabled
Intel Corporation today introduced the Intel Pentium® M processors 715 and 725**, expanding its mobile processor offerings and enabling a broader range of Intel Centrino mobile technology-based mobile PCs at lower price points.
The new chips round out the Intel Pentium M processor line, which also includes the recently introduced Pentium M processors 735, 745 and 755. The Pentium M processor is a key component of Intel Centrino mobile technology – Intel’s best technology for mobile computing. From full-size to ultra-portable notebook PCs, Intel Centrino mobile technology delivers outstanding mobile performance and integrated wireless LAN capability, with energy saving technologies to help extend system battery life in a choice of sleek form factors.
The Intel Pentium M processors 715 and 725 (formerly codenamed Dothan) are built on Intel’s industry-leading, high-volume 90 nm manufacturing technology. Based on Intel’s mobile micro-architecture, the new processors feature 2 MB of integrated, power-managed Level 2 cache; frequencies of 1.50 and 1.60 GHz, respectively; and micro-architectural enhancements such as enhanced data pre-fetcher and enhanced register access manager.
The new Intel Pentium M processors also feature a 400 MHz system bus and are compatible with the Intel 855 chipset family. The new processors are also socket-compatible with the previous processor generation, enabling OEMs to fit them into existing system designs for faster time to market. This also provides end users with a broader range of Intel Centrino mobile technology-based notebooks from which to choose so they can enjoy the freedom and flexibility of computing and communication in more places than ever. Both processors support Enhanced Intel Speedstep® Technology, which helps optimise application performance and power consumption to enable extended battery life.
The Intel Pentium M processors 715 and 725 will be featured in Intel Centrino mobile technology-based systems that are being introduced worldwide starting today. Intel is also shipping boxed versions of the new Pentium M processors to Intel authorised distributors for system integrators worldwide. In 1,000-unit quantities, the Pentium M processors 715 and 725 are priced at $US 209 and $US 241, respectively.
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.com/pressroom.
