Notebook versions of the Pentium III/mobile manufactured using a 0.18 micron process technology will arrive this autumn, Intel said today.
Frank Spindler, vice president of Intel's mobile division, said that the chip will be released at speeds of up to 500MHz.
But, he told attendees at Intel's Developer's Forum in Palm Springs, power saving feature Geyserville would not be incorporated into PIII/mobile parts until processor speeds matched those of desktop chips.
He admitted that the Pentium III/mobile had arrived later than expected by saying: "We did not hit our most aggressive schedule."
Spindler said the form factor for the mobile Pentium III was likely to be smaller for the equivalent Pentium II/mobile part.
The PIII/mobile will arrive around October, but Spindler would not be drawn on a specific date, or on pricing.
He said that Intel was considering future notebook chips which would allow its partners to configure notebook machines, but thought the prospects of end users being able to do so was some time away.
Geyserville versions are likely to appear in Q1 of next year at speeds of 600MHz and higher, said Spindler.
