Intel has officially announced the pricing and branding for a host of new processors.
Four new dual-core mobile Yonah processors - the T2300, T2400, T2500 and T2600 - and one single-core chip, the T1300, will cost $241, $294, $423, $637 and $209 per 1,000 respectively.
All five chips use a 65-nanometer manufacturing and include 2MB of L2 cache. Clock speeds range from 1.66GHz for the T1300 to 2.16GHz for the T2600.
Intel has two other dual-core mobile Yonah chips that operate at low voltage, the L2300 with a clock speed of 1.5GHz costing $284 and the L2400 with a clock speed of 1.66GHz priced at $316. Intel also introduced a second ultralow voltage Pentium M chip, the 773, with a clock speed of 1.3GHz priced at $273.
Intel also released a variety of Centrino mobile technology bundles featuring the new Yonah chips with different chipsets and Intel's Pro/Wireless 3945ABG network connection. Centrino with the T1300 single-core chip, and Intel's 945 PM chipset and Pro/Wireless 3945ABG costs $274, while at the top of range is another bundle of the dual-core T2600 processor, Intel's 945 GM chipset and Pro/Wireless 3945ABG for $706.
The chip giant also introduced four more Pentium D dual-core chips, the 920, 930, 940 and 950, with clock speeds of 2.8GHz, 3GHz, 3.2GHz and 3.4GHz, respectively, and pricing from $241 for the 920 up to $637 for the 950. All four chips were produced using 65nm.
Intel priced up four more Pentium 4 631, 641, 651 and 661 chips, with clock speeds of 3GHz, 3.2GHz, 3.4GHz and 3.6GHz, with pricing ranging from $178 for the 631 up to $401 for the 631.
Intel is due to officially introduce Viiv PCs Thursday at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Rival AMD is also using CES to reveal its Live digital home brand. PCs branded with AMD's Live logo should begin to appear around the middle of this year, according to the company.
Intel has also redesigned the logos for its processors, chipsets, motherboards and its other products. The company brought in two new processor brands, Core Solo and Core Duo, to highlight single-core and dual-core chip implementations. For the Centrino mobile brand, the company has also introduced a "Centrino Duo" logo to emphasise dual-core processors.
