Intel unveiled its Ultra-low Voltage Pentium III server processor this week, as anticipated.

The 700MHz chip, which we've reported on before, in the run-up to Comdex and in our Intel Server Roadmap, is a 0.13 micron Tualatin PIII, primarily aimed at the notebook market.

But like Transmeta's portable-oriented Crusoes, the ULV PIII is equally applicable to very high-density servers, so Intel has decided to punt the chip in that direction too. Well, it can't have Transmeta nibbling away at its market-share, can it?

No, it can't, and hence yesterday's launch. The chip contains 512KB of L2 cache, like other Tualatins, and operates at between 0.95V and 1.1V. ®
