Intel plans to unveil a new mobile processor that will dramatically cut power consumption.
Intel's current mobile Pentium M is based on the technology from the Pentium desktop processor. As the new chip has been designed from the ground up, it will offer additional power savings.
The chip maker declined to provide any additional details about the upcoming product.
Decreasing power consumption has been a major theme in chip design for several years. A more power-efficient chip not only allows mobile battery-powered devices to last longer, but cuts the heat production of servers in enterprises and inside the case for desktop computers.
The move to dual-core processors for mainstream PCs was fuelled in part by the need to increase processing power without increasing power consumption. Multi-core processors were traditionally found only in high-end systems.
