- 4GHz+ Pentium 4 On The Horizon


Yesterday the Inquirer scored a peek at Intel's latest roadmaps, comfirming their intentions to release a 4GHz Pentium 4 by the end of the year. Celeron looks to be heading for 3.3GHz too. There's also a seperate article covering the upcoming Xeon line of processors.


DOWN AT THE PORCUPINE yesterday we saw Intel's latest roadmaps which confirm that it will be able to offer a 4GHz Pentium 4 for sale by the end of the year. Intel's been broadcasting these hopes for quite a while. And as revealed elsewhere today, Intel 925X and 915 are the names for the Alderswood and Grantsdale chipset. The Grantsdale 915GV and GL are the variants for Intel's "Third Generation" integrated graphics, but the 910GL will be backward compatible with 478 pin Prescotts.


As we've written elsewhere, Intel wil introduce a 3.40GHz Northwood version of its Extreme Edition on February 2nd next. But it will also produce an LGA 775 version of this chip in the second quarter.
