The professional business platform includes the dual core chips, the notebook 945GM, PM, and GMS Express chipsets, and Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG.
The fundamental platform is for single core Yonah Pentium Ms, and that's basically the difference except that the former will support VT, and Intel iAMT.
Intel is scheduling the Merom, a different sort of processor in many ways, for the second half of 2006, when it will displace the T1700 at the high end. The 65 nanometre Merom has a 667MHz bus and 4MB of L2 cache, but its clock speed isn't decided yet.
When we saw the latest Intel roadmaps at the Porcupine pub earlier this week, we managed to scribble down some details of the pricing.
|Yonah CPU 667MHz front side bus|
|Yonah CPU 667MHz front side bus LV (low voltage)|
|Yonah DC||L1400||1.66GHz||667||2MB L2||$315|
|Yonah DC||L1300||1.5GHz||667||2MB L2||$284|
|Yonah CPU 533MHz front side bus ULV (ultra low voltage)|
|Yonah SC||1200||1.2GHz||533||2MB L2||$260|
|Yonah SC||1100||1.06GHz||533||2MB L2||$240|
|Intel PRO/wireless 3945 ABG||$26|
Intel will introduce a new member of its Pentium M processor at ULV in early January. This will clock at 1.30GHz, have a 400MHz bus, and be numbered 773. It will have 2MB of cache.
And towards the end of January, Intel will slip in a Celeron M, the 390, costing $135 and clocking at 1.7GHz, with 1MB of cache. µ
