The latest notebook chip from Intel will come out May 10 along with price
cuts and a new naming scheme. Dothan will come with 2MB of cache and run at
2GHz. Models running at 1.8GHz and 1.7GHz will also debut while cheaper, less
speedy models will appear in June. The chip, originally due earlier this year,
was delayed by a problem that hampered manufacture. Dothan also gives Intel an
opportunity to sell Wi-Fi chips. Nearly all Pentium M notebooks come with
built-in Wi-Fi and more than half of those Wi-Fi units are supplied by Intel.
Existing chip production will be cut by 31 to 13 percent. By 2006, a Pentium M
derivative called Jonah is expected to become the mainstay for the desktop line.
