Pentium M-powered Centrino - Pentium M-powered Centrino
Sun, August 03 2003 | 2:00PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Intel's execution has been impeccable of late, and the timing of the introduction of its Pentium M-powered Centrino brand couldn't have been more perfect. As consumers turned to portability and Wi-Fi connectivity as the next killer app, Intel was waiting with just what they needed: a complete package that bundled low power consumption with high performance and wireless networking. In the wake of a multi-million dollar marketing blitz from Intel, much of the Centrino fanfare has centered on its integrated wireless networking technologies. Too much ado about Wi-Fi, I think. As far as I'm concerned, the real gem of Intel's Centrino brand is the new Pentium M processor, which integrates all sorts of neat power saving features to preserve notebook battery life. The Pentium M is loaded with cache and other goodies that let it execute a much higher number of instructions per clock (IPC) than mobile versions of Intel's Pentium 4, too. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Pentium M 1.4GHz-powered notebook for a few days, and I ran it through a gauntlet of performance benchmarks against my own Mobile Pentium 4 1.8GHz laptop. What's the Pentium M all about? Can it perform enough work per clock cycle to make up for a 400MHz clock speed disadvantage? Read on to see.
