Intel to launch Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.40GHz before Prescott

Posted on Saturday, November 08 2003 @ 16:03:33 CET by

Intel revealed a few new things at the International Workshop on Gate Insulator in Tokyo. They had some talks about their new High-K metal gate transistor, and the Japanese audience also get knowledge of Intel his latest roadmap. According to the Japanese PC Watch Intel is planning to launch a 3.40GHz Pentium 4 Extreme Edition before the launch of the postphoned Prescott.

  The latest information is that the company plans to announce the 3.40GHz Pentium 4 XE on 0.13µm Northwood before any Prescott-based solutions. It seems Prescott stepping C1 suitable for volume production will be sampling only by December, volume shipments scheduled to Q1 2004 (closer to February). So today they speak of 3.40GHz Northwood-based Pentium 4 as some intermediate variant to "hold on" until Prescott arrives. By the way, they also say that considering the expected announcement of Grantsdale chipsets in February, we might see Prescott chips in LGA775 packages at once.

Intel deserves to be dragged out to the street and shot . . . but then again so does anyone who buys this chip. What a waste of money.
