Pentium 4's with 800MHz FSB are going to get a new CPU package

Posted on Friday, October 31 2003 @ 23:36:37 CET by

Intel today published a document in which they announced that all their Pentium 4 with 800MHz FSB are going to get a new revised processor package. This includes the 3.20, 3.0, 2.8, 2.6 and 2.4GHz Pentium 4's.

Both the new and the old version contain exactly the same die (D-1 stepping) and the same CPUID (0F29h). They also have the same electrical and thermal specifications.

Old package New package
6 layer 8 layer
12 capacitors / 20 pads 30 capacitors / 30 pads
height : 3.46mm height : 3.75mm

This new revised processor package design is exactly the same as the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition his processor package which we have already seen in a lot of reviews. According to Intel processors with this new cpu package will be available on the 24th of November.

And what will this change do? Increase performance?

    I think Intel is trying to make their production process cheaper. Producing the same package for both normal Pentium 4s and Pentium 4 Extreme Editions is easier and cheaper than producing two different ones.

    I don't know what you can expect from it for the Pentium 4 C's, but I don't think you'll see increased performance. Maybe better overclockability because of the additional layers and capacitors but maybe not.
