In the second quarter of this year Intel will announce the Pentium 840 PPXE dual-core processor and it will be priced at a hefty $999.
The 840 is a 3.2GHz hyperthreading enabled processor in the re-branded Extreme Edition family and comes with two times 1MB of cache, in the LGA 775 package.

And the latest roadmaps show Intel is sticking to its last on the 840, the 830 and the 820 microprocessors, which aren't enabled for hyperthreading, do have two sets of 1MB cache, and will cost $530, $315, and $240 respectively. These Intel will call the Pentium D - for Different, with a new logo to Distinguish them from the others.
