Intel is expected to announce next week its first mobile chips to incorporate the SpeedStep technology to save battery life in notebook PCs.
Code-named Geyserville, the new technology is due to show up in mobile Pentium III chips running at 650MHz or 600MHz when the notebook is plugged into an outlet or a docking station. Both chips slow down to 500MHz when running on a battery.
Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Dell, Compaq, NEC and Toshiba are all expected to use the SpeedStep-enabled PIIIs in upcoming products
