Pentium vs I' Series Powered By Docstoc
					The Pentium M brand refers to a family of mobile single-core x86 microprocessors (with the modified
Intel P6 microarchitecture) he Pentium M processors had a maximum thermal design power (TDP) of 5–
27 W depending on the model, and were intended for use in laptops (thus the "M" suffix standing
for mobile) The Pentium M-branded processors were succeeded by the Core-branded dual-
core mobile Yonah CPU with a modified microarchitecture

he usually power-hungry secondary cache uses an access method which only switches on the portion
being accessed. The main intention behind the large cache was to keep a decent-sized portion of it still
available to the processor even when most of the L2 cache was switched off, but its size led to a welcome
improvement in performance.

With this technology, a 1.6 GHz Pentium M can effectively throttle to clock speeds of 600 MHz, 800 MHz,
1000 MHz, 1200 MHz, 1400 MHz and 1600 MHz; these intermediate clock states allow the CPU to better
throttle clock speed to suit conditions. The power requirements of the Pentium M varies from 5 watts
when idle to 27 watts at full load. This is useful to notebook manufacturers as it allows them to include the
Pentium M into smaller notebooks

he processor line has models running at clock speeds from 1.0 GHz to 2.26 GHz as of July 2005. The
models with lower frequencies were either low voltage or ultra-low voltage CPUs designed for even better
battery life and reduced heat output. The 718 (1.3 GHz), 738 (1.4 GHz), and 758 (1.5 GHz) models are
low-voltage (1.116 V) with a TDP of 10 W, while the 723 (1.0 GHz), 733 (1.1 GHz), and 753 (1.2 GHz)
models are ultra-low voltage (0.940 V) with a TDP of 5 W.
