Intel will this week announce details about a new wave in desktop computing using the Centrino bundle. But it’s a tacit admission by Intel that the Pentium M, a successor to the Pentium III-M, is a cool operator, and can do most of what a Pentium 4 can, whether it be labelled a Prescott or not. Pentium M is such a successful chip that in 2005 Intel may integrate the low wattage CPU cores into one four way die.
