Intel Corporation today introduced the Intel® Celeron® M processor for mobile PCs. This processor line represents a new generation of Intel technology for the mobility value market segment. Intel has also unveiled a new brand and logo for this product line.
Based on Intel’s micro-architecture designed specifically for mobile computing, the Intel Celeron M processor offers users a balanced level of mobile-optimized processor technology, good mobile performance and exceptional value in sleeker, lighter notebook designs.
Specifications and Pricing
The Intel Celeron M processor is built on Intel’s 0.13-micron process technology. The standard-voltage version is available at speeds of 1.30 GHz and 1.20 GHz, operates at 1.356 volts and has a thermal design power (TDP) of 24.5 watts. The ultra-low voltage (ULV) version is available at 800 MHz, operates at 1.004 volts and has a TDP of 7 watts. All three versions of the Intel Celeron M processor feature a 400 MHz processor system bus and 512 KB of L2 cache, and support advanced mobile power management, including Deep Sleep states, which help enable longer battery life by minimizing the power consumption of the processor during brief periods of inactivity by the user. These features enable thinner, lighter notebooks with good mobile performance and battery life for the price-sensitive value PC market segment. The processors are compatible with the Intel® 855 chipset family as well as the Intel® 852GM chipset to enable cost effective, scalable platforms for system manufacturers.
In 1,000-unit quantities, the Intel Celeron M processors at 1.30 GHz and 1.20 GHz are priced at $134 and $107, respectively; the ULV Intel Celeron M processor at 800 MHz is priced at $161.
