Intel follows in Crusoe’s footsteps


Intel Corporation today introduced two new ultra-low-power mobile PC microprocessors, including the industry’s first to operate under 1 volt while consuming less than half a watt of power.** Enabled by Intel’s advanced processor design and power-reduction technologies, the new processors are designed to deliver high performance, minimal power consumption and extended battery life for the smallest mobile PCs.

The new Ultra Low Voltage mobile Pentium® III processor 500 MHz featuring Intel® SpeedStep™ technology brings high performance to mobile PCs weighing less than three pounds and measuring one inch in height. This processor operates at less than 1 volt and consumes less than half a watt of power in Battery Optimized Mode at 300 MHz.

Intel also introduced the Ultra Low Voltage mobile Celeron™ processor 500 MHz, delivering the industry’s highest performance for the value sub-notebook segment.

“Breakthrough technologies to improve mobile computing continue to drive our business. Last year Intel led with SpeedStep technology, and the first sub 1 watt PC processor. Today we lower power below half a watt,” said Frank Spindler, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Mobile Platforms Group. “Every category of laptop will see world-class performance, compatibility and optimal battery life with Intel Pentium III mobile processors.”
