At a launch event inside New York's Grand Central Terminal, Intel introduced three Processor-M chips running at speeds of 1.4GHz, 1.5GHz, and 1.8GHz. All are based on Intel's NetBurst chip architecture, which improves the quality of graphic-rich applications and Internet-related computing, according to Intel.
The chips deliver added horsepower to wireless accessories on laptops, such as Bluetooth for wireless PANs (personal area networks) and 802.11 for wireless LANs (local area networks). Their increased clock speeds also improve the performance of popular applications such as digital music, photography and gaming, he said.
All of the OEM laptop systems that were on display at the launch running the new Pentium 4 Processor-M chips were suited with either Bluetooth, 802.11, or a combination of both wireless technologies.
