    Intel decks old Pentium Ms as Dothan looms
    http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=15422
    There could be bargains about


    By INQUIRER staff: Tuesday 20 April 2004, 10:58

    AS WE REPORTED at the beginning of this month, Intel will introduce a
    2GHz "Dothan" Pentium M chip on the 9th of May.

    See Dothan 2GHz (755) Pentium M to arrive in May.
    http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=15176


    And Italian web site hw-vault.com has had its eyes skinned and detects
    the disappearance of a number of old Pentium Ms, as well as some other
    disappearances on the Xeon and Pentium 4 front.

    That information is here.

    It's as well to keep your eyes skinned for Centrino bargains if you're
    on the lookout for a system using the old Pentium M "Banias" cores.
    Intel reported at its last conference call that it had quite a few in
    stock.

    It will move to persuade its notebook customers to use the newer
    Pentium M and deck the old just as soon as possible. But there could
    well be bargains about in the small window between now and May. µ

    Intel Dothan to debut on 10 May
    By Tony Smith

    Intel's 90nm Pentium M chips, codenamed 'Dothan', will at
    long last ship on 10 May, clocked at up to 2GHz - higher
    than originally planned when Intel was still considering
    a 15 February debut.

    So claim sources close to the chip giant, according to
    Xbit Labs.
    http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/mobile/display/20040416131314.html


    At this stage, it's not clear whether Intel will offer
    533MHz frontside bus support or stick with the 400MHz FSB
    used by today's PMs. Circumstantial evidence from
    third-parties suggests it might, but the quoted clock
    speeds point to a 400MHz FSB for now.
    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/03/30/intel_dothan_to_offer_533mhz/


    Intel will offer three 90nm PMs: the 735, 745 and 755,
    clocked at 1.7GHz, 1.8GHz and 2GHz, respectively, and
    priced at $294, $423 and $637.

    That will necessitate a price cut for the older, 130nm
    PMs, with the 1.5GHz, 1.6GHz and 1.7GHz parts falling to
    $209, $241 and $294 from today's $241, $294 and $423,
    respectively. Those reductions amount to cuts of 13.3 per
    cent, 18 per cent and 30.5 per cent, respectively.

    A month later, Intel will release the Pentium M 715 and
    725, presumably at 1.5GHz and 1.6GHz, matching 90nm parts
    to their 130nm predecessors, paving the way for the
    elimination of the 130nm chips altogether.
