Intel today launched its 400 MHz mobile Pentium II and Celeron microprocessors and shipped its first products built using 0.18 micron processing technology.
Specifically designed for high performance mobile PCs, the new mobile Pentium II comes in several tailored packaging designs aimed at meeting different sizes, thermal requirements and power consumption levels.
The lower priced mobile 400MHz Celeron is also available in several different tailored packages and is aimed at consumers.
Both chips support Intel's mobile specific lower power modes aimed at extending battery life in mobile PCs. These low power states include a Quick Start mode, which reduces power to 0.5 watts, and a deep sleep power mode where power is only 0.15 watts.
Frank Spindler, vice president of Intel's mobile and handheld groups commented: "Today's workforce is becoming increasingly mobile, and mobile Pentium II processors give users the processing power they need to be successful in the evolving Internet based business world."
He added, "These processors deliver the highest performance and capability to run demanding Internet, productivity and multimedia applications for businesses and consumers alike."
Also today, Intel said it is shipping the first processors built using its 0.18 micron processing technology.
The 0.18 micron process allows the processors to be built smaller, faster and more powerful than Intel's previous 0.25 micron process.
