According to X-bit Labs the Intel Prescott CPU will be launched on the 2nd of February, 2004. On that day Intel is going to announce 7 new desktop processors, including 4 Prescott CPUs with 1MB L2 cache running at 3.40GHz, 3.20GHz, 3.00GHz and 2.80GHz. All of these have an 800MHz FSB, SSE3 and Hyper-threading ofcourse.

The Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Editition at 3.40GHz is also planned for that date, just like a normal Pentium 4 Northwood clocked at 3.40GHz. Also a new Prescott product with 533MHz FSB; the Pentium 4 2.80A which is based on the Prescott core with 1MB cache and SSE3 but it does not support Hyper-Threading.
Pricing
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.40GHz - $999;
Intel Pentium 4 “Northwood” 3.40GHz - $417;
Intel Pentium 4 SSE3 “Prescott” 3.40GHz - $417;
Intel Pentium 4 SSE3 “Prescott” 3.20GHz - $278;
Intel Pentium 4 SSE3 “Prescott” 3.00GHz - $218;
Intel Pentium 4 SSE3 “Prescott” 2.80GHz - $178;
Intel Pentium 4 SSE3 “Prescott” 2.80A - $163;

On the 15th of February the world’s largest microprocessor supplier with align “Northwood” and “Prescott” pricing, as a result, the chips with 512KB of cache and 1MB of cache will be priced equally.
