Intel Corp. says its innovating silicon technologies that enable extended security, parallelism and reliability on mainstream personal computers will be enabled when the next breed of Windows code-named Longhorn is available on the market.

Intel already discussed its plans to enable extended security features, beyond today’s non-execute bit, code-named LaGrande. Previously it was anticipated that the technique was to be implemented into the currently shipping 90nm processors, such as Intel Pentium 4 “Prescott”, however, Intel officially did not confirm this during the launch of the chip.
