The Pentium M 780 hasn't yet appeared on Intel's public price list, but the 2.26GHz chip has started to appear on the chip giant's website following its quiet launch this weekend.

The 780 popped up in Japanese PC retailers' stores yesterday, though Intel has yet to formally introduce the chip.

Intel has also shipped the Pentium M 778, a 1.6GHz low-voltage part. Both chips contains 2MB of L2 cache, but while the 780 supports a 533MHz frontside bus, the 778 will only operate across a 400MHz bus.

Intel extended its Celeron M range this past weekend with the 380, a 1.6GHz part with 1MB of L2 cache and 400MHz FSB support. Like the two new Pentium Ms, the 380 supports the Execute Disable Bit anti-virus system used by Windows XP Service Pack 2. The two higher-end chips also support Extended SpeedStep. ®
