At IDF, Intel today previewed the Monahans CPU, a gigahertz-class successor to the currently widely used Pocket PC CPU Bulverde.

The 90nm part is due to be formally launched in Q4 2005, Sean Maloney, VP and General Manager of Intel's Mobility Group, said today at Intel Developer Forum.

Describing the chip as "another step ahead in performance", Maloney showcased a pre-production Monahans running at 1.25GHz which was used to decode and play back HD video on a PDA screen. 8O

For the Monahans launch, it may not debut at 1GHz "only" - Maloney admitted:

"We don't know whether we'll introduce at 1GHz or above, but there's enormous headroom there."

Maloney indicated Monahans would deliver around 25 per cent more performance than Bulverde - 1000 mips to 800 mips, according to a chart he presented - but he didn't specify the two parts' clock speeds. Bulverde is currently offered at up to 624MHz. So a 50 per cent increase in clock speed is delivering only a 25 per cent increase in performance. That's in part due to Monahans' lower power consumption, though Maloney did not indicate now much lower.
