Intel to launch 3.46GHz Pentium 4 Extreme Edition with 1066MHz FSB

Intel told its clients that they are going to introduce the Glenwood chipset in Q2 2005. The Glenwood is a chipset for the high end desktop market. Details about this chip haven't been leaked yet.

Another rumour is that Intel is going to launch a 3.46GHz version of its Extreme Edition processors, with a 1066MHz FSB during this quarter. It will cost nearly $1,000.

The next pricing change for desktop CPUs will be on the 22nd August, as previously revealed here. But Intel hopes to get a 570 (3.8GHz) out of the door during Q4.

On the Celeron front, Intel will release a 3340J chip (2.93GHz) with a 533MHz front side bus. The J cognomen means it will support the Execute Disable Bit capability.

It will make a series of price cuts to its desktop chipsets towards the end of September, but it will only be a matter of a buck or two. Intel is also implementing lead free chipsets during the second half of this year.
