Intel geezer talks in Geyserville
It's all to do with AC/DC -- you can swing both ways...
Intel Developer Forum Senior executives at the Intel Corporation talked about products which will arrive in Autumn using Pentium III technology which will dramatically increase power performance. According to the Intel source, the combination of 0.18 micron technology, Streaming SIMD extensions in the PIII and Geyserville technology will make mobile machines much better. Geyserville dynamically changes both the voltage and frequency of the silicon part. It is proprietary Intel technology which will be given free to vendors which use the microprocessors. Intel has no plans to license the technology to competitors including AMD, NatSemi and others. At the same time, the Intel source told The Register that its mobile Celerons will use the 440MX chipset. He revealed that Intel is actively lobbying international airlines and hotel chains to assist end users and executives to keep their machines running, wherever that is. Fully functional mobiles are likely to cost around $1200 by early next year. ®
