Intel will next Monday roll out low-power 200MHz and 233MHz Pentium MMX processors, firing a new generation of fast but thrifty mobile PCs.

The parts - formerly known by the Tillamook codename - will be the first to be based on the chip giant's state-of-the-art 0.25-micron process fabrication facility which allows smaller, cooler, more efficient power-saving and faster processors to be built. Intel's fastest current desktop CPUs are based on a 0.35-micron process.

Later this month, Intel will follow up with a blueprint that will help hardware and software makers build products that preserve battery life.
