New roadmaps from Intel have appeared stating that the company will launch its 65nm dual-core Presler processors in the first quarter of next year. They will be called 9xx series. These CPUs will have two times 2MB of cache and will initially aim at the high-end market.
These Pentium Ds will come with Vanderpool VT virtualization technology, use the Broadwater chipset, include Intel GbE LAN, and the next generation of AMT.
Clock speeds will be de-emphasised - the 95X will clock at 3.40GHz, while the other three members of this family will have clock speeds of 3.20GHz, 3GHz, and 2.8GHz. All will use the 800MHz front side bus.

The company also plans a single-core 3.8GHz Pentium 4, the 670, which will cost $850. The whole 6xx family will also get a price cut in mid-August and the 315/350 Celeron is expected at the end of June.
