Intel is to announce a new version of its Pentium MMX microprocessor designed for use in notebook computers. The processor takes advantage of Intel’s 0.25-micron process lowering power consumption and heat dissipation. Code named Tillamook, the first versions run at 200 and 233MHz with a 266MHz version planned for later this year.
Intel will offer Tillamook in special mobile modules which are designed to allow notebook manufacturers to quickly enter the market without having to redesign their notebooks for the new chip. All major notebook computer manufacturers will announce models based on Tillamook.
Intel competitors Advanced Micro Devices and Cyrix are planning to announce versions of their microprocessors aimed at notebook applications by the end of this year.
