Intel Corporation introduced the Mobile Intel P4 processor supporting Hyper-Threading (HT) Technology for portable notebook PCs, commonly referred to as desktop replacement notebooks. These systems offer consumers such desktop-like features as large screens, full-size keyboards and multiple drives.


The Mobile Intel P4 processor supporting HT Technology offers frequencies up to 3.20 GHz, and power management features that enable lower thermals than its desktop counterpart. Notebooks based on this processor allow users to take better advantage of such multi-threaded and processor-intensive multimedia applications as video encoding, digital media and gaming.

HT Technology allows the portable notebook PC’s processor to simultaneously work on two separate threads, improving performance when multiple applications are running. For example, a user can play an immersive game while encoding audio or video, compressing images or compositing special effects. HT Technology offers better responsiveness and performance when multitasking with existing applications. Performance also increases significantly with current “multi-threaded” software and performance headroom for the next wave of multi-threaded applications.

The Mobile P4 processor supporting HT Technology works with the Intel 852GME and 852PM chipsets and is 

built on the Intel NetBurst microarchitecture. It features a 533 MHz system bus and supports advanced mobile power management, including Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology, Deep Sleep and Deeper Sleep.
