Intel announced on Friday that it will demonstrate its next-generation mobile processor at the TechXNY conference next week.
Intel will show the 0.13 micron mobile Pentium III processor-M, the new mobile version in its "Tualatin" family of processors, the company said in a statement. The 0.13 micron Tualatin is set to be officially launched next month, with server, mobile and desktop versions of the chip available. Intel has actually been shipping all three versions of Tualatin to vendors since May.
The mobile chip, will be capable of speeds "in excess of 1GHz," Intel said. The server version of the processor runs at 1.13GHz, sources familiar with the company's plans said.
The 0.13 micron manufacturing process allows companies to shrink the dimension of circuits on a processor, making them faster, cooler, and less power hungry. Notebooks stand to benefit most from the technology, where 0.13 processors can help boost performance without reducing battery life.
