View Full Version : When is Intel going to get their act together and release Pentium-M for desktops?

I know you can order adapters and whatnot to make P-M work in desktops, but when is Intel going to dump P4 and officially release a P-M processor? Toms latest article shows the Pentium-M murders both the P4 and Athlon64 across the board.

Hopefully when Yonah arrives (mid 2006'?), demand for Desktop performance will persuade them into rethinking their strategy for Pentium M. :confused:

I find it funny that Intel is currently owning themselves with their "previous gen" CPU architecture (well in games atleast.. hehe)
Modified as it may be, its still based on P3..

here be benchmarks! (if anyone would be intrested)

Yea I really don't understand why they are taking so long with the Pentium M's also...

especially since the P4 seems to have run into the wall when it comes to clockfrequencies.. havent seen it scale alot latly, mainly more cache..
Dual Core will buy some time I guess, and they prolly have a new architecture in the works to release sooner or later, whenever that will be..

Intel should drop Pentium 4s asap and make dual core Pentium-Ms ;)

Thats what Yonah i believe

The reason why it does so well is due to the 10 stage pipeline, Vs AMD64 12 stage and Intels Northwood 20 and Prescotts 30 stage pipelines.

Pentium M for desktop will never happen because it not on the roadmap for 2006 and beyond. Intel next desktop chip will be based on Conroe core due in Q4 2006, it will be the first chip to have non Netburst, it will be based on new architecture.

As bad as NetBurst is, they are still making plenty of money on it, since Intel is considerably more popular then AMD outside the enthusiast front. They are taking the time to do it right, a High IPC arhcitecture will arrive from Intel in Q4 2006 like above said.

Pentium M in it's current form has some weaknesses, namely the weak floating point performance. This will be addressed in the new architecture.

They can't get rid of Netburst fast enough. It's really been Netbust in terms of performance. I'm still waiting for the Athlon 64 X2s to become more available so I can dump this computer.

Yep.... What he said. ;)
Intel will be back in the game next year. :)

all its missing is a on-die memory controller....

the efficiency of the M design is the only thing Intel has ever created that makes me truely have to decide between intel of AMD...

You do remember that there was a time where Intel was pretty much the only choice right? ;)

i sure do. then AMD won my heart, but i could see myself cheating on AMD with the M. yum :)
