Intel Viiv coming up along with availability of 65nm Presler

Posted on Saturday, Dec 31 2005 @ 20:38 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Within a couple of days Intel will announce its Viiv platform at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and by January 15, 2006 we can also expect the new 65nm Pentium Extreme Edition 955 in retail stores.
Just to refresh your memory, the other product introductions slated for that date include the Pentium D 950, a 3.4GHz 800MHz dual chip with 2x2MB of cache, the 940, a 3.2GHz beast in the same mould, the 930 - a 3GHz dual core chip with similar characteristics, and lastly but not leastly the Pentium D 920, a 2.8GHz processor.

These critters all use the LGA775 socket but the 478 socket lives on in the shape shifting Celeron D 350 - a 3.2GHz CPU with a 533MHz front side bus, 16K L1 and a paltry 256K L2 cache, but which supports Screaming Sindie in her first, second and third recensions.
There will also be a few new Pentium M and Celeron M processors, more info over at The Inq.
