- Intel Pentium 4 EE

Today Intel announced that it had started shipping its Extreme Edition version of the Pentium 4 processor to compete in the gaming and enthusiast CPU market which AMD had hoped to dominate for at least 6 months with their Athlon 64 CPU. The processors will retail for around one grand of US dollars - we guess - as in one thousand unit quantities, the processor costs $925 US.

First discussed at the Fall 2003 Intel Developer Forum, the Intel Pentium 4 processor Extreme Edition supporting HT Technology provides gamers and power users with a premium computing experience. In addition, the processor helps deliver enhanced graphics - a key factor for more realistic game play - through faster frame rates and higher-level detail rendering.
