The Pentium 4 3.40GHz Extreme Edition, which will be launched on the 2nd of February will cost $999 and the 3.20GHz EE wil stay at its price of $925.
There are more price cuts on Pentium 4 processors are now slated for the 2nd of February as well, but this price cut will act as a stage setter for more price cuts on the 15th of February on desktop CPUs.
The firm appears to be maintaining that Prescott chips will launch on the 2nd of February in the latest roadmaps we've seen.
Intel is also readying a 2.8GHz Celeron which will use a 90 nanometer process, a 533MHz front side bus, and 256K of cache.
That's going to be priced at $117.
The Grantsdale and Alderwood chipsets are still targeted to be launched in the second quarter, with a modification to ICH6W to include a wireless access point. WAP manufacturers aren't going to care for this very much. Alderwood is an 800MHz dual DDR2 chipset which runs in so called "turbo" mode and is similar to Grantsdale P, which launches at the same time.
Grantsdale GV and Grantsdale GL won't be introduced until the third quarter of 2004.
