Intel has informed its Taiwanes clients that it will launch its new mobile platform, Sonoma, globally between January 17-21, 2005. Pre-launch sales will begin in Japan 10 days earlier.

The company also confirmed that a 3.73GHz Pentium 4 Extreme Edition and 600-series desktop CPUs will be launched in Q1 2005. These will support Intel's EM64T technology.
In the third quarter of 2005, Intel will launch its dual-core processor for desktops, codenamed Smithfield, the sources added. The launch was previously reported as set for mid-2005.

Intel will roll out three versions of the Smithfield processor initially, with clock speeds of 2.8, 3.0 and 3.2GHz, respectively. In addition, each core of the Smithfield processor will feature 1MB of L2 cache, according to the sources.

Intel Smithfield dual-core processors will also feature Intel’s Speedstep technology, which can reduce the power consumption of the CPU and help optimize heat dissipation, the sources added.
