Intel has said it will begin shipping its first silicon chip for its new line of Banias processors for mobile computers during the first quarter of 2003.

Anand Chandrasekher, vice-president and general manager of the company's Mobile Platforms Group made the announcement at a keynote speech at the Intel Developer Forum.

At the IDF he demonstrated a Banias processor running alongside an Odem chipset, the prototype chipset developed for the Banias processor. The demonstration follows the first outing of the Banias chip at the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference in Seattle last week.

Chandrasekher did not disclose the demonstration Banias chip's clock speed or the amount of power consumed by the chip, saying that the company would release further details of the chip later this year.

In addition to Banias, Chandrasekher demonstrated a 2GHz version of the mobile Pentium 4 processor and said Intel planned to ship a version of the chip running at that speed or higher before the end of this year. Intel also expects to begin shipping a 1GHz version of its low-voltage mobile Pentium III processor by the end of the year, he said.
