Intel Pentium M dual core chips? No kidding
WEB SITE Digitimes, fresh from its typhoon traumas, reckons that Intel will highlight a dual core Pentium M codenamed Napa when it heralds its future directions at the Intel Developer Forum in September.
The existence of a dual core Pentium M has been an open secret at Intel for many months - and makes a lot more sense for a desktop than throwing dual core "Smithfield" chips into the frying pan and out of the fire.
We wonder whether a dual core Smithfield will really have what it takes. Even if and when Intel moves to 65 nanometres, we suspect that passive leakage problems will be worse, rather than better.
