IDF The 90nm Prescott version of the Mobile Pentium 4 processor will be the last to bear that name, according to the chip maker's mobile products chief, Anand Chandrasekher. Well, maybe.

Speaking to reporters at IDF, Chandrasekher said that the company will probably kill off the Mobile P4 "around Q1 2005 or maybe a little later".

Essentially, Intel will move towards a product line based around the Pentium M and the Centrino brand. As we reported earlier, Intel plans to use the 90nm Pentium M, Dothan, to begin pushing Centrino toward consumers this year. Dothan ships next quarter, but the big push may not come until the second generation of Centrino, codenamed Sonoma, arrives in the autumn.

Chandrasekher said earlier this week that Intel will rapidly ramp up production of the 90nm mobile processor through the coming quarters. ®
