How Prescott prices will shape up

Desktop Roadmaps
Thu Dec 18 2003, 15:31
THE MAJOR change in the first generation of Prescott chips is cache size - and it won't be until later in the year that we'll see big frequency changes until later next year.

That's emerged from roadmaps seen by the INQUIRER, which also show that Intel is moving fast to displace existing Northwood Pentium 4s with its new process generation, the 90 nanometer chips.

Although by the end of next year, Intel hopes to hit or exceed speeds of 4GHz, the higher frequency chips need to use the LGA775 rather than the socket 478, which will only be used for a little while for Prescotts in the coming year. µ
