HyperThreading Technology For Portable Notebook PC

News Release

INTEL DEBUTS HYPER-THREADING TECHNOLOGY*
FOR PORTABLE NOTEBOOK PCs

Intel Corporation today introduced the Mobile Intel® Pentium® 4 processor supporting Hyper-Threading (HT) Technology* for portable notebook PCs, commonly referred to as desktop replacement notebooks. These systems offer consumers such desktop-like features as large screens, full-size keyboards and multiple drives.

The Mobile Intel Pentium 4 processor supporting HT Technology offers frequencies up to 3.20 GHz, and power management features that enable lower thermals than its desktop counterpart. Notebooks based on the Mobile Intel Pentium 4 processor supporting HT Technology* allow users to take better advantage of such multithreaded and processor-intensive multimedia applications as video encoding, digital media and gaming.

HT Technology allows the portable notebook PC's processor to simultaneously work on two separate threads, improving performance when multiple applications are running. For example, a user can play an immersive game while encoding audio or video, compressing images or compositing special effects. HT Technology offers better responsiveness and performance when multitasking with existing applications. Performance also increases significantly with current "multithreaded" software and performance headroom for the next wave of multithreaded applications.

The Mobile Intel Pentium 4 processor supporting HT Technology works with the Intel® 852GME and Intel® 852PM chipsets and is built on the Intel® NetBurst™ microarchitecture. It features a 533 MHz system bus and supports advanced mobile power management, including Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® technology, Deep Sleep and Deeper Sleep.

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.


Intel, Pentium and SpeedStep technology are trademarks or registered trademarks of Intel Corporation or its subsidiaries in the United States and other countries. Other names and brands may be claimed as the property of others.

* Hyper-Threading Technology requires a computer system with a Mobile Intel® Pentium® 4 processor supporting Hyper-Threading Technology and a HT Technology enabled chipset, BIOS and operating system. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software you use. Visit www.intel.com/info/hyperthreading for more information, including details on which processors support HT Technology.
