"Intel Updates Plans Again: Adds Pentium 4 Extreme Edition at 3.40GHz

Processors | Adul Tangtam on Nov 11th, 2003 3:43 AM from x-bit

Intel has updated their roadmap once again and added a P4EE at 3.4 and a P4 at 3.4. I just shutter to think how hot these babies will run.

Sources close to Intel are reporting about two new microprocessors for Socket 478 infrastructure to emerge in the first quarter 2004. The first processor will be Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition at 3.40GHz with 2MB of L3 cache, the second one will be the Intel Pentium 4 processor at 3.40GHz with 512KB of L2 cache. Both chips will be produced using Intelís mature 0.13 micron technology and will feature 800MHz Quad Pumped Bus being compatible with existing i865 and i875P infrastructure."

And if your credit card will be compatible with about a 1200 buck hit.

The 3.2...should be hitting various shelves next week, if not already. GamePC says they're getting the 3.2 Nov 20th...and they're not known for being the first to get hot new items.

I thoguht about it

to be perfectly honest I see no need for it right now.

I can play every single game out there at 1600x1200

and will be able to play most new games coming up for the next year or so

For now I am not spending anymore money
