Intel mobile processors

Intel Corp. has launched five new mobile processors. The new processors include mobile Pentium IIIs running at 750MHz and 600MHz, and a trio of mobile Celerons running at 650MHz, 600MHz and 500MHz. The 600MHz Pentium III is the first high-performance processor from Intel to consume less that one watt of power on average, making it well suited for use in ultraportable notebooks such as Sony Corp.’s Vaio. Intel officials said. The processor has been designed in such a way that it can drop its power consumption when the processor isn’t actually doing any work, the officials said Also aimed at the ultraportable market is the 500MHz Celeron, which consumes less than two watts of power on average, Intel officials said. The new processors have been shipping to PC makers for a month or more, and should be available soon in notebooks from Dell Computer Corp., Toshiba Corp., Sony Corp., Compaq Computer Corp., NEC Corp. and others, Intel said. Pricing for Intel’s new processors ranges from US$134 for the low-power 500MHz Celeron, to $562 for the 750MHz mobile Pentium III, in 1,000-unit quantities. Intel, in Santa Clara, Calif., can be reached at
