Intel revealed its upcoming mobile Pentium 4 processor by using notebooks from Toshiba, Micron PC and Gateway for demonstrations at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on Wednesday (9 January).

The company confirmed that the processor is on track for a launch in the first half of 2002, starting with a 1.5GHz version of the processor and moving up to 2GHz by the end of the year, said Don MacDonald, director of marketing for the Intel Mobile Group.

The mobile Pentium 4 will combine the performance benefits of the desktop Pentium 4 with power-saving functions such as an enhanced version of SpeedStep, Intel's technology for dropping the clock speed of a chip to conserve power when a laptop is running on batteries, and a "deeper sleep" mode, in which the processor will use even less power when in sleep mode, MacDonald said.

The processor will find its way into both full-size and thin-and-light notebooks by the end of the year, MacDonald said.
