Chip maker Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA, U.S.) has launched four new mobile processors--three mobile Pentium 4 chips and a Celeron chip—as it looks to increase its notebook processor base.

The launch ushers in the second generation Mobile Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 Processor based on Intel's industry-leading high-volume 90-nanometer (nm) process technology and expands the company's Intel Celeron(R) M Processor family.

The Mobile Intel Pentium 4 Processors are designed for larger-sized notebook PCs, also known as "desktop replacements," typically featuring large screens, full-size keyboards and multiple drives.

Mobile Intel Pentium 4 processors 538, 532, and 518 reportedly boasts new features and high performance, including support for Hyper-Threading (HT) Technology, a larger, 1-MB Level 2 cache, 13 new Streaming SIMD 3 Extensions (SSE3), enhancements to the Intel NetBurst(R) microarchitecture, and speeds of 3.20 GHz, 3.06 GHz and 2.80 GHz, respectively.

These processors also offer such power management features as support for Enhanced Intel Speedstep(R) technology. The Mobile Intel Pentium 4 processor supporting HT Technology works with the Intel(R) 852 GME and Intel 852 PM chipsets.

Based on Intel's mobile microarchitecture, the Intel Celeron M processor 340 features 512 KB of L2 cache, frequency of 1.50 GHz, 400 MHz system bus, and operates at a lower core voltage than the Intel Celeron processor. The Intel Celeron M processors are compatible with the Intel 855 chipset family as well as the Intel 852GM chipset.
