Intel Pentium 4 Mobile in March

While Toshiba, in cooperation with Intel, will present a notebook with a 1.7 GHz Pentium 4 Mobile at this year's International Consumer Electronics Show 2002, which will take place in the coming days, the actual presentation by Intel will not be until March of this year

If everything goes according to plan, four versions of the Pentium 4-M will be announced in spring are clocked at 1.4 GHz, 1.5 GHz, 1.6 GHz and 1.7 GHz. They will all be based on the Northwoord core, which is manufactured in 0.13 µm and has a 512kb L2 cache. In the further details, too, the mobile version will largely be the same as the desktop Pentium 4. However, the Pentium 4-M will have special power-saving modes such as Intel's SpeedStep in an extended version (Extended SpeedStep) and Deeper Sleep technology. The processor itself will come in a microFCPGA 478 housing. Intel will of course bring the corresponding chipsets onto the market together with the presentation of the new mobile processor.

According to the processor giant's current plans, it will be 1.8 GHz in the third quarter of this year and a 2 in the fourth quarter GHz variant of the Pentium 4-M.
