Dothan is Intel’s code name for the 2nd generation Celeron M and Pentium M processor. Its successor is Banias (code name).
As the M line was originally designed in Israel, the first Pentium M (code name Banias) was named after an ancient site in the Golan Heights. Following that tradition, Intel unveiled plans to release Dothan, also named after another ancient town in Israel and was formally launched on May 10, 2004. Dothan Pentium M processors are among the first Intel processors to be identified using a “processor number” rather than a clockspeed rating and the mainstream versions are known as Pentium M 710 (1.4 GHz), 715 (1.5 GHz), 725 (1.6 GHz), 735 (1.7 GHz), 740 (1.73 GHz), 745 (1.8 GHz), 750 (1.86 GHz), 755 (2.0 GHz), and 765 (2.1 GHz).
