Apple to use Pentium M as first Intel inside chip

I see where eWeek are reporting that Apple’s first Intel chip may be a new Intel Pentium M code named Yonah – due out early 2006.

According to the eWeek article, the Yonah

will be manufactured using its forthcoming 65-nanometer process, will receive a number of tweaks aimed at boosting performance and power management capabilities, Intel said recently. The chip’s twin cores will provide a performance boost while multitasking, for example, but also aid machines running on battery power by shutting down one core to cut power consumption

Well, if it is light, low powered and fast, you won’t hear me complaining!
