Those chips are positioned to succeed the 3.73GHz Pentium 4 EE to launch using the 925XE Express chipset in the fourth quarter. They'll be launched in Q2 of next year at speeds of 3.74GHz and 4GHz using 800MHz and 1066MHz system buses.Prescott processors clocked at 3.80GHz with EM64T are expected for the fourth quarter of this year, and a 4.00GHz version of Q1 2005.
Intel's Cranford for 4P systems and using the Twin Castle chipset is still on track for Q1 of next year, at frequencies of 3.66GHz. And in Q2 Intel will launch Potomac Twin Castle server chops with 8M of level three cache and 1MB of level two cache.
Twin Castle will support dual front side buses, DDR2-400 memory, EM64T, PCI Express and direct connect storage components. The "Cranford" chip will target the value end of the four way market.
Intel is readying the Harwich four way Intel server board which will use the Twin Castle chipset and support four Potomacs in Q2 next year.
