AMD announces two new mobile processors

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has announced two additions to its line of mobile processors – the Mobile Athlon 64 3400+ and the Mobile Athlon XP-M 2200+. The Mobile Athlon 64 3400+ is based on AMD’s AMD64 chip architecture and supports both 32-bit and 64-bit software. The chip also includes an antivirus function, called Enhanced Virus Protection, which is based on a feature included in Microsoft’s upcoming Windows XP Service Pack 2, according to AMD. The Mobile Athlon XP-M 2200+ is a low-power chip designed for use in thin and ultra-portable laptops, it said. The Mobile Athlon 64 3400+ and the Mobile Athlon XP-M 2200+ are currently available worldwide, AMD said. The chips are priced at $US432 and $US97, respectively, in 1000-unit quantities.

Intel unveils four new low power Pentium M chips

Intel has introduced four new mobile chips for small notebooks that operate under severe power constraints. The Low Voltage chips consume a maximum of 10 watts of power, while the Ultra Low Voltage chips use only 5 watts of power, Intel said. The Ultra Low Voltage chips can be used in ultra-portable notebooks without a cooling fan because of their miserly power consumption. The Pentium M Low Voltage 738 processor runs at 1.4GHz, the Pentium M Ultra Low Voltage 733 runs at 1.1GHz, and the Pentium M Ultra Low Voltage 723 chip runs at 1GHz. The new chips cost $US284, $US262 and $US241, respectively, in quantities of 1000 units. The Celeron M Ultra Low Voltage 353 processor runs at 900MHz and costs $US161 in quantities of 1000 units.
