Intel today introduced the Intel® Celeron® M processor for
mobile PCs. This processor line represents a new generation of Intel technology
for the mobility value market segment. Intel has also unveiled a new brand and
logo for this product line. Based on Intel’s micro-architecture designed
specifically for mobile computing, the Intel Celeron M processor offers users a
balanced level of mobile-optimized processor technology, good mobile performance
and exceptional value in sleeker, lighter notebook designs. In 1,000-unit
quantities, the Intel Celeron M processors at 1.30 GHz and 1.20 GHz are priced
at $ 134 and $ 107, respectively; the ULV Intel Celeron M processor at 800 MHz is
priced at $ 161.
The Intel Celeron M processor is built on Intel’s 0.13-micron
process technology. The standard-voltage version is available at speeds of 1.30
GHz and 1.20 GHz, operates at 1.356 volts and has a thermal design power (TDP)
of 24.5 watts. The ultra-low voltage (ULV) version is available at 800 MHz,
operates at 1.004 volts and has a TDP of 7 watts. All three versions of the
Intel Celeron M processor feature a 400 MHz processor system bus and 512 KB of
L2 cache, and support advanced mobile power management, including Deep Sleep
states, which help enable longer battery life by minimizing the power
consumption of the processor during brief periods of inactivity by the user.
These features enable thinner, lighter notebooks with good mobile performance
and battery life for the price-sensitive value PC market segment. The processors
are compatible with the Intel® 855 chipset family as well as the Intel® 852GM
chipset to enable cost effective, scalable platforms for system manufacturers.
