Intel Prescott 3.40GHz CPU : Price revealed!

Posted on Monday, July 07 2003 @ 16:52:17 CEST by

The Springdale/Canterwoods with 800MHz FSB processors are just out for a few months, so its time for Intel to release new information about their upcoming chipsets/processors. Today X-bit Labs has revealed the pricing of the first Prescott CPU which can be expected in the fourth quarter of this year. This one will be a 3.40GHz one which will feature a 800MHz FSB (Quad Pumped) and also 16KB of L1 cache and 1MB of L2 cache, which is twice as much as the newest Pentium 4's have. Further it will have improved Hyper-Threading and bring 13 Prescott New Instructions (PNI). The price will be $640 in quantities of 1000.

You can also expect price drops in the fourth quarter of this year, probally on the 26th of October :
3.20GHz (800MHz FSB) 3.0GHz (800MHz FSB) 3.06GHz (533MHz FSB) 2.80GHz (800MHz FSB) 2.80GHz (533MHz FSB)
$420 $275 $260 $220 $180

The processor currently code-named as Prescott and which branding is still to be determined will be produced using 90nm strained silicon manufacturing process. The Prescott core is said to consist of 100 million of transistors, about the same number as found on the high-end AMD Athlon 64 chips that also due to come this year. The forthcoming Prescott CPUs will feature 16KB of L1 cache and 1MB of L2 cache. Furthermore, Intel will implement a more efficient pre-fetch mechanism as well as Hyper-Threading technology into its next-generation NetBurst processors. Besides, Prescott is expected to bring the highly-anticipated 13 Prescott New Instructions (PNI) some of which address thread synchronization and one should improve the speed of processing video encoding tasks. Other new instructions support floating-point-to-integer conversions, SIMD floating-point operations and complex arithmetic operations. Finally, Prescott will support Intel’s La Grande security technology that helps to create a safer computing environment for e-Business, enabling protected execution, memory and storage.
