Intel launches ultra-low power mobile processors

Author: JT Smith

PCWorld reports: "Intel is firing a return shot at low-power chip newcomer Transmeta by releasing two low-power processors it
claims run faster and use less power than Transmeta's Crusoe. IBM is the first supporter, using one of the chips
in a notebook shipping shortly in Japan.

Making their debut Tuesday were the 500-MHz Ultra Low Voltage Mobile Pentium III with SpeedStep, and a
500-MHz Ultra Low Voltage Mobile Celeron. IBM will use the PIII in its Thinkpad I-Series 1124."
