Update: Adding Intel Celeron M pricing and setting new date.

Sources close to Intel Corporation said today the company has a big week for mobile announcements starting from the 16th of February 2004 – the first day of Intel Developer Forum Spring 2004. The company unveils new highly-anticipated Dothan processor, new LV and ULV Pentium M and Celeron M chips and a more advanced WLAN adapter.

Intel Pentium M “Dothan” processor with 2MB of L2 cache will start at 1.80GHz speed-bin. Given its higher core frequency and 2MB of cache instead of only 1MB featured by its predecessor, the CPU will consume more energy compared to the Banias despite of thinner 90nm fabrication technology. Earlier this year it was said that TDP of higher-end Dothan processors will be 29W to 31W, while thermal design power of current Pentium M “Banias” chips is just about 24.5W.

Intel will unveil three 90nm mobile processors with 2MB cache and 400MHz PSB – at 1.80GHz, 1.70GHz and 1.60GHz. The products will be priced at $637, $455 and $326 respectively. Additionally, there will be LV Pentium M chip 1.30GHz with 1MB cache at $284 price-point, ULV Pentium M processor 1.0A with 2MB cache at $262 and ULV 1.0GHz Pentium M with 1MB L2 priced at $241.

Besides, Intel is set to release its Celeron M microprocessors with 512KB L2 either on the 11th of January, or a bit later at IDF 2004. Still made at 0.13 micron node, the Celeron M will be available in 2 versions – 1.20GHz and 1.30GHz. Additionally, there will formal announcement of the ULV Celeron M processor at 800MHz that is already available. The Intel Celeron M processors will cost $149 and $107 for the faster and the slower version respectively. ULV Intel Celeron M will be quoted at $161.

All new central processing units for mobile applications will be compatible with i852PM, i852GM, i852GME, i852GMV, i855PM, i855GM and i855GME chipsets.

In an attempt to further strengthen its Centrino platform, Intel is also expected to make available its Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG – a version of Intel’s WLAN card that allows working in both 802.11b (11Mb/s) and 802.11g (54Mb/s). The 2200BG is not Intel’s last point in wireless networking next year. Sometime in the second half of 2004 Intel is set to release its Calexico2 a/b/g adapter able to function in 802.11a (54Mb/s), 802.11b (11Mb/s) and 802.11g (54Mb/s).

Intel officials did not comment on the story.
