Intel delivers low-power chips

summery

SAN FRANCISCO: Intel Corp on Monday introduced five new computer chips for laptop computers touted as the best way to increase processing speeds while conserving power.

The new mobile Pentium III and Celeron chips are the latest using the company's SpeedStep technology announced last winter. To save power, the chips run slower on batteries than they do when plugged into an electrical outlet.

The timing of the new releases was seen as a pre-emptive strike against upstart chipmaker Transmeta Corp, which contends laptop or Internet appliances running its Crusoe chip will last twice as long on battery power as those with Intel processors.

Intel on Monday introduced a Pentium III mobile chip running at 750 megahertz that uses less than two watts when running on battery power, and a Pentium III at 600 megahertz that uses less than one watt.

Three new Celeron mobile chips, with running speeds between 500 megahertz and 650 megahertz, were also introduced, including one that operates on less than two watts.

The company did not estimate how much battery life might be saved using the new chips.

The fastest laptops until now used the 650 megahertz Pentium III SpeedStep chip announced in January.

Intel, based in Santa Clara, California, since October has sharply closed the divide in power and performance of processors between desktops and laptops with the introduction of the Pentium III chip and new plant technology.

The new Pentium III mobile at 750 megahertz costs US$562 in lots of 1,000, while the low-power 600 megahertz version costs US$316. The new Celeron at 650 megahertz costs US$181, and the low-power version at 500 megahertz will cost US$134.

Transmeta executives said Intel was trying to confuse customers with a wide array of products of different speeds and voltages. They also contend the new low-power chips will operate at less than one watt only when the computer is idle, while their chips consume less than one watt while working at full speed.  

英特爾推出5種低能源芯片。此時發布被認為是為了構成對于新崛起的芯片廠商Transmeta的搶先優勢;而trans meta的經理人員則認為英特爾的芯片只有在機器空閑時才能低于一瓦,而他們的芯片在全速工作時便低于一瓦。
