The Inq saw Intel's latest roadmaps and reports the chip giant is getting ready to launch its 65nm Pentium 4 processors on the 1st of January 2006.

This will include the Presler 950, the 940, the 930 and the 920 at prices of $635, $423, $316 and $240. These chips are clocked at 3.4GHz, 3.2GHz, 3GHz and 2.8GHz respectively. They have a 800MHz FSB, 2x 2MB L2 cache and use the LGA775 socket.

Two weeks later on January 15th the company will launch the Pentium Extreme Edition 955 which uses a 1066MHz FSB. This processor is clocked at 3.46GHz and features 2x 2MB L2 cache. This chip will cost $999.
When Intel releases the 9XX family, it will drop prices on the 661, the 651, the 641 and the 631 in line with its usual phase outs. These will cost $400, $272, $220 and $178. This is because Intel will swiftly migrate the 6XX family to 65 nanometres, it has told its customers.

Chipzilla, as we reported the last round, will introduce a 3.33GHz Celeron (533FSB/256K cache) chip on Christmas Day at a price of $127. And it will lower the price of this chip a month later to $10 less, as it cuts prices on the 351, the 346, the 341, the 336 and the 331 Celerons.
