As predicted by The Register here, Intel today duly takes the wraps off two new mobile Pentium IIIs and a trio of mobile Celerons.

The new mobile 750/600MHz Pentium III (the second figure is the battery optimized Geezerville aka SpeedStep rating) uses less than 2W of power at 1.35V in battery operation, and costs $562 in 1000-unit quantities.

A new low power 600/500MHz mobile PIII runs on a miserly 1.1V and consumes less than 1W of power on batteries and is aimed at ultra-portable notebook PCs weighing under three pounds and measuring an inch in height. Yours for $316.

The new mobile Celeron processors at 650 and 600MHz will set you back $181 and $134 respectively, while the low voltage 500MHz part, also priced at $134 in 1K quantities, consumes less than 2W at 1.35V instead of the mobile Celeron's normal 3W at 1.6V. All five processors are available now.

Despite Chipzilla's reticence to admit it, all 0.18 micron Celerons come with Screaming Sindy's Extensions as standard. ®
