Intel Corp. will continue withdrawal of the Pentium brand from the market later this year when it unveils its new generation desktop and mobile processors under the Core 2 brand-name.
For the first time in years Intel will have the same trademarks for its desktop and mobile processors, something, which should emphasize good performance per watt ratio for the new chips known under Conroe, Merom and Woodcrest code-names and also their low power consumption. The new desktop Core 2 Duo chips will consume only up to 65W, whereas modern high-performance Pentium D chips have thermals of up to 130W.
Intel Core is the name for the company’s dual-core mobile processor code-named Yonah that sports several performance enhancements over the previous-generation Pentium M chips, but does not provide certain modern features, such as 64-bit capability. Intel Core 2 processors, however, will support 64-bit technology and also employ many performance-boosting features compared to the Core or the Pentium D chips.
