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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
