Intel's Prescott P4 Arrives (3 Comments) (link)
 Monday, 2-February-2004  13:23:56 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Intel have released their Prescott processor. This is the latest incarnation of their Pentium 4 line, debuting at a range of speeds up to 3.4GHz including a new Extreme Edition. It's more than just a speed ramp though, with many internal changes including a die shrink due to the move from a 130nm process to 90nm, 7 interconnect layers intead of 6, larger caches as well as 13 new instructions in the form of SSE3. Some people are wondering why this wasn't called Pentium 5 instead of Pentium 4 - the changes are that significant.
