Pentium-M to the Desktop!

The Inquirer reports that

"Intel will this week announce details about a new wave in desktop computing using the Centrino bundle… Pentium M, a successor to the Pentium III-M, is a cool operator, and can do most of what a Pentium 4 can, whether it be labelled a Prescott or not. The INQ understands that the Pentium M is such a successful chip that in 2005 Intel may integrate the low wattage CPU cores into one four way die."

One assumes this means a desktop chip package and some reference boards, perhaps announced at the Intel Developers Forum in SF this week. It is exciting news for low noise computing enthusiasts, who have experimented with expensive P-M versions of Mini-ITX boards. We anticipate a huge migration to the Pentium-M, limited only by quantities of what Intel can deliver.
