Intel Silverthorne Chip for UMPC. Intel is slated to debut the Silverthorne microprocessor later this week. The upcoming single-core processor known as Silverthorne is a 45nm processor designed for the mobile market, such as UMPCs and tiny notebooks.

Intel has upgraded the chip with HyperThreading support. While tiny in size, it is a full blown 64-bit processor. It sports a 16-stage pipeline, 533MHz bus and 512KB L2 cache. As a scaled-down x86 chip, Silverthorne can top out at 2Ghz (2W) to do the heavy-lifting, while also dialing-down to a more mobile-friendly 600mW operating range. Silverthorne should bring Pentium M performance to the mobile space.
