Q: What is Intel 0.13-micron technology?
A: 0.13 micron is a manufacturing term that refers to the feature size of the poly-silicon gate in the microprocessor. This feature size has a direct correlation to the speed and power requirements of the microprocessor. As feature sizes are reduced, the process speed (MHz) increases while the power requirements decrease correspondingly. 0.13 micron is currently the smallest feature size available in high volume manufacturing. This technology allows for greater speeds than ever before with lower power consumption, resulting in greater performance and longer battery life in thinner, lighter notebooks.
Q: What clock speeds are available for the Pentium III Processor � M?
1.20 GHZ, 1.13 GHz, 1.06 GHz, 1 GHz, 933 MHz, 866 MHz, 866 MHz Low Volt, 850 MHz Low Volt, 800 MHz Low Volt, 800 MHz Low Volt (100 FSB), 750 MHz (100 FSB) Low Volt, 733 MHz Low Volt, 750 MHz Ultra Low Volt, 733 MHz Ultra Low Volt, 700 MHz Ultra Low Volt (100 FSB)
Q: What is Data Prefetch Logic?
A: The Mobile Intel Pentium III Processor � M features a Data Prefetch Logic that anticipates data needed by an application and pre-loads it into the Advanced Transfer Cache, further increasing processor and application performance.
Q: What is Enhanced SpeedStep technology?
A: Intel Enhanced SpeedStep technology provides desktop class performance with all the benefits of mobility. This is accomplished with two dynamically switching performance modes. Maximum Performance mode provides desktop-class performance when you are connected to AC power, while Battery Optimized mode delivers maximum battery life. For example, when a system is unplugged, the mobile Pentium III processor 750MHz core automatically drops to 600 MHz from the peak frequency of 750 MHz. At the same time, the operating voltage of the processor drops to 1.35 volts from 1.6 volts. In addition, Intel SpeedStep technology software allows for automatic or user controlled performance mode switching. The software supports all the major operating systems including Microsoft's Window* 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, and Windows XP through a common code base.
Q: What is Quickstart technology?
A: Developed by Intel, Quickstart puts the processor into a low power mode of less than half a watt when the processor is inactive or when transitioning between performance modes. The processor can enter this low power mode regardless of the application or performance mode that the system is running in.
Q: What is Deeper Sleep technology?
A: In addition to Quickstart, Deeper Sleep is an even lower power mode that is used during the transition process between performance modes. When in Deeper Sleep mode, the processor draws even less power than Quickstart while allowing the performance mode transition process to occur.
Q: At what speed does the data bus operate on the Mobile Pentium III Processor � M?
A: 133 MHz, increasing processor bus bandwidth over previous mobile solutions by 33% for faster access to system resources such as memory, I/O devices and graphics.
Q: Which chipsets support the Mobile Pentium III Processor � M?
A: The Mobile Pentium III Processor � M is compatible with Intel 830MP chipset, 830M chipset, 830MG chipset.
