Prescott will be introduced at 3.20GHz in the second half of next year.
And Intel will introduce hyperthreading in desktop CPUs at speeds of 3.06GHz and bove. While Intel will also introduce a 3.20GHz Pentium 4 in Q2 of next year.
As we said earlier, Intel will introduce its Pentium 4 2.80GHz processor this quarter - it will cost $508 at launch, the 2.6/2.66 Pentium 4s will cost $401, and the 2.53GHz/2.5GHz processors at $243.
In early September, the 2.4GHz/533 Pentium 4 will cost $193, the 2.26/2.2GHz part $193, the 2GHz chip $163, the 1.9GHz chip $163, the 1.8GHz Pentium 4 will then be $143.
Intel said the October 27th move has been pulled in to September 1st, knocking the October 27th price move for six - and the entry level price for Pentium 4s will be only $143.
And Intel will do far better than just release a 3GHz P4 in the fourth quarter of this year - it will introduce the 3.06GHz then - with hyperthreading.
It will release a 2GHz Celeron in Q3, and has added 2.20GHz and 2.10GHz roadmaps to the model.
Rather disappointingly, the Celerons at 2GHz, 2.10GHz and 2.20GHz will still only have 128K of cache, but they will be produced on 130 nanometers (.13µ).
PC1066 will, at last, be validated for the 850E, but that won't be until the fourth quarter. It will also add the 845GV to its chipset roadmap in Q4 - this will support 533MHz front side buses and all the features of the 845GL, but will have integrated graphics only and no AGP port, and be pin compatible with the 845G.
As for Springdale - it will release that in two versions - one, Springdale G, with integrated graphics, and the other Springdale-P, without integrated graphics.
Springdale has been dragged screaming into Q2 of 2003 - it originally was supposed to be offered in the second half of next year. µ
