Intel details Core-based mobile, desktop Pentiums

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

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.
