Intel Core Solo microprocessor family is a family of single-core mobile processors based on improved mobile (Pentium M) micro-architecture. The Core Solo microprocessors have all of the basic features found in the Pentium-M Dothan microprocessors: 32 KB instruction and data level 1 caches, 2 MB level 2 cache, support for SSE and SSE2 instructions, execute-disable (NX or XD) bit, and package power-saving modes. The Core Solo CPUs also include Virtualization technology and support for SSE3 instructions.

Production microprocessors

Intel Core Solo U1400 LE80538UE0092M
There were two types of Core Solo microprocessors based on their power consumption - standard power, identified by "T" prefix in the model number, and ultra-low power consumption, identified by "U" prefix in the model number. Ultra-low power Core microprocessors had significantly lower Thermal Design Power than standard power Core Solos. For example, this Core Solo U1400 model consumes no more than 5.5 Watt, while all standard-power Core Solos may consume as much as 27 Watt. Lower power dissipation for U1XX line was achieved largely by running processors at slower frequency and lower core voltage. Also, the full line of U1XX CPUs was produced in micro-BGA package, that was soldered directly on a motherboard, and, therefore, had lower profile than socketed microprocessors. Low power and low profile advantages of U1XX series of CPUs made them ideal for thin and ultra-thin notebooks. The main disadvantage of these processors was the fact that the microprocessors were soldered, hence were almost impossible to replace or upgrade.
Intel Core Solo T1200 LF80538GF0212M
T1200 is the slowest microprocessor from Core Solo family. Clocked at 1.5 GHZ, the CPU uses 667 MHz Front Side Bus frequency, and includes standard for Solo processors 32 KB + 32 KB level 1 cache and 2 MB level 2 cache. Like all other Core T1x00 models, the T1200 has Execute Disable bit and Virtualization features. The T1200 was sold only as OEM processor, and shipped in Mac Mini computers. As usual for OEM processors, information on this model cannot be found on Intel's website.
Intel Core Solo T1300 LF80538GF0282M / BX80538T1300
This T1300 and many other Core CPUs are packaged in 478-pin micro FC-PGA package. While older mobile microprocessors, including mobile Pentium 4-M, mobile Pentium 4, Celeron M and Pentium M, were also packaged in 478-pin package, it doesn't mean that all these processors are compatible with each other. In fact, there is a difference in location of one pin between Core Duo/Solo, Pentium M/Celeron M and Mobile Pentium 4/4-M packages. Even more confusing part is that all these processors use socket 479 (a socket with 479 pin-holes), that will accept any of these 478-pin packages. While all above-mentioned processors will fit in that socket, only one processor family will be electrically compatible with it. For these reasons Core Duo/Solo microprocessors cannot be used to upgrade Celeron M/Pentium M or Mobile Pentium 4 laptops.
Intel Core Solo T1350 LF80538GE0362M / BX80538T1350
First generation of Core microprocessors, officially released in January of 2006, used Front Side Bus frequency 667 MHz. One month after that, in Februrary 2006, Intel quitely introduced OEM-only versions of Core microprocessors that had 533 MHz FSB. Core CPUs with 533 MHz FSB can be easily identified by their model number - all of them have "50" as the last two digits of their model number (e.g. T1350). Very limited information about these CPUs was posted on Intel's website.
