Intel, AMD, each launch new chips

Both AMD and Intel launched new processors this week, the latter debuting a new 333MHz version of its mobile Celeron processor.

According to Intel, the 333MHz mobile Intel Celeron processor, which features 128KB integrated level 2 cache, is up to 11 per cent faster than the 300MHz mobile Celeron.

"Intel's mobile Celeron processors offer the benefits of low power for long battery life, unique packaging for smaller and lighter systems, and a mobile-friendly thermal design specification which avoids the need for bulky or noisy cooling devices," said Intel Australia general manager, David Bolt, in a statement released by the company.

The mobile Celeron processor is now available in speeds of 266MHz, 300MHz and 333MHz.

Intel has also released new low-voltage versions of the mobile Pentium II and Celeron processors at 266MHz.

AMD this week debuted its new 475MHz AMD K6-2 processor with 3DNow! technology. IBM has already committed to using the new chip in a soon-to-be-released Aptiva PC.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
