IMG 8585 s Intel 90nm Pentium M Dothan

Intel is shipping three new Intel® Pentium® M processors, boosting the
performance of Intel Centrino mobile technology to enhance the way people work,
play and communicate without wires. The new chips are the first mobile
processors built on Intel’s 90-nnm manufacturing technology, and feature faster
clock speeds, design enhancements and more on-die cache memory for better
performance. Formerly codenamed Dothan, the Intel Pentium M processors 735, 745
and 7553 are built on Intel’s industry-leading, high-volume 90nm manufacturing
process technology – the most advanced semiconductor manufacturing process in
the industry. The 90 nm process produces smaller, faster transistors and uses
Intel’s strained silicon technology to give its transistors a speed boost,
resulting in higher performance headroom.

Intel is shipping three new Intel® Pentium® M processors, boosting the
performance of Intel® Centrino(tm) mobile technology to enhance the way people
work, play and communicate without wires. The new chips are the first mobile
processors built on Intel’s 90-nanometer (nm) manufacturing technology, and
feature faster clock speeds, design enhancements and more on-die cache memory
for better performance.

The Intel Pentium M processor, in conjunction with the Intel® 855 chipset family
and the wireless communication capability of the Intel® PRO/Wireless network
connection family+, make up Intel’s Centrino mobile technology. Intel Centrino
mobile technology delivers outstanding mobile performance and wireless LAN
capability, while enabling extended battery life in thinner and lighter notebook
PCs. Today, more than 150 laptop PC designs are based on award-winning Intel
Centrino mobile technology, and more than 32,000 hotspots are included in
Intel’s worldwide Wireless Verification Program, which tests the compatibility
of various access point devices and wireless service providers with common
configurations of notebooks built on Intel Centrino mobile technology.2

"Wireless mobile computing has clearly resonated with business users, driving
Intel Centrino mobile technology to become a mainstay in enterprise IT
deployments," said Lai Yit Loong, Director of South East Asia and Country
Manager for Singapore, Intel Technology Asia. "Now with higher-performing
platforms, a growing ecosystem of software and services, and exciting consumer
advertising and retail programs underway, Intel Centrino mobile technology is
poised to extend the ‘unwired’ lifestyle beyond the enterprise to consumers at
home and on the road."

Advanced Technology Maximizes Mobile Performance and Productivity

Formerly codenamed Dothan, the Intel Pentium M processors 735, 745 and 7553 are
built on Intel’s industry-leading, high-volume 90nm manufacturing process
technology – the most advanced semiconductor manufacturing process in the
industry. The 90 nm process produces smaller, faster transistors and uses
Intel’s strained silicon technology to give its transistors a speed boost,
resulting in higher performance headroom. Intel is the first in the industry to
put strained silicon into production and all of Intel’s 90-nm products are
manufactured on 300-mm wafers, which provide more than double the capacity of
the earlier 200-mm wafers.

Based on Intel’s mobile micro-architecture, the new processors boost performance
by up to 17 percent (as compared with the previous generation processor), with 2
MB of integrated, power-managed Level 2 (L2) cache, micro-architectural
enhancements and frequencies up to 2 GHz.1 With the new processors and the
recently introduced Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG network connection, Intel Centrino
mobile technology enables improved high-definition video playback, faster
application response, better multi-tasking and higher bandwidth wireless data
transmission.

Socket-level compatibility with the previous Pentium M processor generation
allows OEMs to build the new components into existing system designs.
Compatibility also means that enterprises that take advantage of Intel’s Stable
Image Platform Program can benefit from the higher performance of the new
processors without changing their original system image for Intel Centrino
mobile technology based systems.

All three processors support Enhanced Intel® Speedstep® Technology, which helps
optimize application performance and power consumption to enable longer battery
life.
 

Intel Centrino Mobile Technology Unwires Consumers

According to industry analyst firm IDC, mobile PC sales are growing
dramatically, with sales to consumers representing the fastest-growing
sub-segment.4 From families that want to stream movies room-to-room in the home
to kids playing high-speed, wirelessly networked games to students doing
homework on campus or at a public hotspot, the latest Intel Centrino mobile
technology-based notebooks provide the freedom and flexibility to compute and
communicate in more places than ever.

As the "unwired" lifestyle gains in popularity among consumers, new services and
content are becoming available to allow consumers to enjoy digital media in new
and exciting ways. For example, this summer visitors to Hollywood’s Universal
CityWalk* will be able to view live, streaming TV from OnAir Entertainment* via
a high-speed 802.11g wireless network. Another example can be found this year in
the American Pavilion of the Cannes Film Festival, where high-definition
trailers and a movie will be streamed wirelessly via 802.11g and 802.l1a
networks to Intel Centrino mobile technology-based laptops.

Earlier this year, Intel kicked off a worldwide advertising campaign for Intel
Centrino mobile technology targeted at the fast-growing mobile PC consumer
market segment. The global campaign consists of television, print, online and
outdoor elements. Intel is also working with retailers to enhance in-store
merchandising and increase retail staff training on Intel Centrino mobile
technology during the second half this year.

Specifications, Pricing and Availability

The Intel Pentium M processor will be featured in Intel Centrino mobile
technology-based systems that are being introduced worldwide today and
throughout this quarter. Intel is also shipping boxed versions of the new
Pentium M processors to Intel authorized distributors for system integrators
worldwide.
