Hitachi Brings Intel Pentium M-Based Desktops

By on
Hitachi this week announced a series of desktops with Intel Pentium M and Intel Celeron M processors inside. Both chips were originally developed for notebooks and feature plethora of power-saving capabilities. Operating at clock-speeds from 1.00GHz to 1.70GHz, the processors offer performance comparable with mainstream Intel Pentium 4 chips that require more powerful fans and consume more energy.

Hitachiís HF-W2000 and HF-W6500 slim PCs available initially only in Japan will not only feature rather unusual microprocessors for desktops, but will also offer ISA-slots for totally outdated add-in cards. Performance of the Hitachiís innovative personal computers is not expected to be really high, as they feature Intelís integrated graphics and single-channel DDR SDRAM memory-supporting core-logic. Such PCs are typically used in office, where low heat dissipation of Pentium M and Celeron M may play an important role.
