2/27/2001: Intel throws the Pentium III to 700 MHz deep I consume for portable
A few weeks ago we mention that Intel had decided to do a strong competence in Transmeta, whose family of processors Crusoe has the minor consumption between the processors destined for the market of portable PCs. Continuing with this politics, Intel throws a new Pentium III to 700 MHz for this select market.
The new model is made under the 0,18 micron s technology, needs 1,35 V to 700 MHz (1,1 V to 500 MHz) and in certain conditions of energy saving it can go so far as to remove less than one heat watio, a few impressive numbers if we bear in mind the real "cauldrons" that are the current microprocessors. It incorporates the system Speedstep, which limits the speed of the microprocessor to 500 MHz on having worked by means of the battery. It incorporates 256 KB of cache memory L2 integrated (at the same speed as the microprocessor) and 100 MHz Federal Security Service uses a bus . The cost for processor places environment to 316 $ in quantities of 1.000 units.
On the other hand, Intel does not stop in 700 MHz and it is already preparing the throwing of the model of low consumption for a 1 GHz made of 0,13 micron s technology , something on the other hand essentially if the heat dissipation wants to diminish. According to Paul Otellini, Vice-president of Intel, they hope to throw it at the end of this first trimester of the year.
Paul Otellini also speaks about a future Pentium 4, not only for a new socket, but also made of 0,13 micron s technology , with initial speeds of 1,5 and 1,6 GHz. According to his words, the throwing of the above mentioned Pentium 4 (version 1.2?) place at the end of this year or beginning of 2002. Good future for Intel...
