Intel details Core-based mobile, desktop Pentiums

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Computex Intel has rolled out its anticipated extension of ye olde Pentium brand into the more advanced Core era with a quintet of desktop and laptop processors based on its new architecture.

They're formally named Pentium Dual-Core processors, even those most existing NetBurst-based Pentium Ds are too.

All five are fabbed at 65nm and contain 1MB of L2 cache. The range starts of with three mobile, T-class models: the T2060, T2080 and T2130, clocked at 1.6GHz, 1.73GHz and 1.86GHz, respectively. All three operate on a 533MHz frontside bus.

Above them sit the 1.6GHz E2140 and the 1.8GHz E2160, both of which sit on an 800MHz FSB and support 64-bit processing, a feature missing from the T-class chips.

It's not hard to imagine the new Pentiums aimed at low-cost systems aimed at buyer who might dismiss the Celeron brand as too low-end - and at developers of embedded applications.

Intel's plan to released Core architecture-based Pentiums has been known about since last summer, but the focus has been on desktop products, so the arrival of mobile parts - or, rather, mobile-class products; they're more likely to find a role in set-top boxes and the like, we'd say - comes as a surprise, particularly since this segment is already well covered by the old Core Duo and Core Solo brands.
