TG Daily reports Intel has found a customer for an old out phased processor. Toshiba's new HD DVD player apparently uses the Intel Pentium 4-M processor and a chipset originally designed for the ULV Celeron M processor.
Sources told TG Daily that the HD DVD player, which will be offered in two versions for $500 and $800, integrates a Pentium 4-M processor. The chip is based on the 130 nm "Northwood" core and was available with clock speeds ranging from 2.4 to 3.06 GHz. Officially, the CPU is no longer available and apparently has been phased out several months ago to drive the Pentium M processor into more market segments. It is unclear which version of the Pentium 4-M is used in Toshiba's HD DVD player.
