Intel releases new LV and ULV Centrinos + price cuts

Posted on Monday, July 19 2004 @ 14:15:40 CEST by

Yesterday Intel released new low-voltage (LV) and ultra-low voltage (ULV) Pentium M processors and Centrino bundles. Also introduced is a new ULV Celeron M processor, and decreased pricing of Intel's Mobile Pentium 4 line and desktop P4 processors.
Intel introduced three new PMs: the LV 738, and ULV 733 and 723. On their own, the chips cost $284, $262 and $241, respectively, when sold in batches of 1000 CPUs. The three a clocked to 1.4GHz, 1.1GHz and 1GHz, respectively.

Interestingly, the new parts are fabbed at 130nm even though they include 2MB of L2 cache. That cache size would normally indicate a 90nm 'Dothan' part. Older LV and ULV PMs are 130nm, 1MB parts.

Incidentally, Intel cut the price of the 1.1GHz ULV PM 713 from $262 to $241, a reduction of eight per cent.

It also added a 900MHz ULV Celeron M 353 at $161, knocking the price of the existing CM 333 (also 900MHz) from $161 down 10.6 per cent to $144. The CM 353 is a 90nm part, according to Intel's price list.

The 90nm Mobile P4 518 saw its price fall 7.9 per cent, from $202 to $816 - matching exactly the price reduction applied to the 2.8GHz 130nm MP4.

Intel also trimmed the price of the 775-pin Socket T desktop P4 520 from $178 to $163, a fall of 8.4 per cent.
