Intel is releasing several new products into its worldwide channel programme, including boxed processors for notebook PCs. The new boxed mobile Pentium III processors will help integrators build notebook PCs, and get a share of a market that is at present dominated by large manufacturers, said Willy Agatstein, director of product marketing at Intel's reseller products division.
"We have brought the building blocks to smaller resellers so that they can build mobile products and compete in that marketplace," Agatstein said. "Now the mobile processor is in a form they can purchase and install, and we have tools to make sure the notebook is running properly."
Intel has begun initial shipments of boxed mobile versions of its Pentium III processor to authorised distributors at clock speeds of 450MHz, 500MHz, 600MHz and 650MHz.
Dave Rhombert, director of technology at Coastline, a company that builds servers and workstations, and which plans to enter the growing mobile market, said: "It will help us open doors into that mobile area."
Intel is also targeting the channel with a range of new products for the server and workstation markets. The new products include the Integrated Raid Controller SRCU21, the SC5000 server chassis and the SR2000 2U rack-server chassis.
