7/31/2001: The first 0,13 microns Intel are for portable
Intel has just announced the availability of his first microprocessors made with 0,13 micron s technology ; according to the proper Intel, this technology allows them to achieve circuits with an approximate breadth of the thousandth part of a human hair, what in practice is translated in chips more children, with more transistors and of minor consumption.
This paragraph, that of the consumption, makes this technology especially interesting for portable PCs. The new mikes need only 1,4 V at his maximum speed, and 1,15 V (with a "theoretical average consumption" of only 2 W) when they limit his speed to 733 MHz. Also, there has been improved perceptibly the system of saving of energy SpeedStep, which now acts "on the march" and adds a way of extra saving.
The thrown models are five, to 1,13 GHz, 1,06 GHz, 1,0 GHz, 933 MHz and 866 MHz, all with the new nucleus Pentium-M or portable Tualatin, which includes the double of cache memory L2 (512 KB), a new one Dates Prefetcher for the above mentioned cache memory, and uses a 133 MHz bus . The prices change between 625 $ and 247 $, being undoubtedly the 933 and 866 MHz mikes those of better value for money.
Also, the new chipset has presented before himself i830 for portable, with support of memory PC133 and other proper progress of the modern chipsets Intel for PCs of dessert (6 ports USB, integrated network, etc.). The whole renewal of the scale, undoubtedly...
