We reported yesterday that Intel will sell its next generation of mobile processors, WLAN chips and core-logic sets under one brand-name – “Centrino” (see this news-story). It was correct to report the brand-name of the new technology, however, it does not mean that there are be no names for the processor, chipset and WLAN controller, as was supposed earlier.

According to an official document of the Santa Clara, California-based semiconductor maker, the Banias family of microprocessors is called Intel Pentium M, the chipset family is named as i855 and the Wi-Fi controller holds traditional Intel PRO/Wireless brand-name.

It should be pointed out that Intel will only use Centrino mobile technology brand for those systems that are equipped with the mentioned components. In case Intel advertises its Centrino brand only, not a lot of companies will offer Intel Pentium M-based computers without wireless LAN feature because no one will be impressed by the Intel Pentium M processor since they will look forward Intel Centrino logotype.
