Intel Corporation has initiated shipments of its recently announced Pentium 4 3.60GHz processor also known as Intel Pentium 4 560. Announced in mid-June, the chip did not immediately make appearance in retail and personal computers assembled by leading makers of PCs, such as Dell.

Intel Pentium 4 processor 560 operates at 3.60GHz, features HT and SSE3 technologies and comes in LGA775 form-factor. The chip is compatible with Socket T mainboards supporting 800MHz processor system bus, based on i915- or i925X-series chipsets from Intel. The chip can dissipate up to 115W of power and requires mainboards to support Platform Compatibility Guide 04B.

Akiba PC Hotline reports that stores in Tokyo, Japan, sell Intel Pentium 4 560 processor for $720 to $730. Two stores in the USA listed by Xbitlabs.Dealtime.com offered the chip for $720 and $745, but at press-time the product was out of stock. Intel’s official price for the product is $637 when bought in business quantities.

Dell also offered Intel Pentium 4 560 processor for high-end workstations and desktops at press time.

Earlier this year Intel had to postpone the release of its Pentium 4 processor 3.40GHz produced using 90nm process technology for more than a month. As a result, computer makers had to stick to older-generation Pentium 4 processor 3.40GHz manufactured using 130nm fabrication technology.

Exactly. Whoop D freakin doo...I don't care if they begin shipping genetically cloned supermodels for every guy on this planet...Oh wait, yes I do...Its more exciting than a CPU!

The CPU market has slowed to a grinding halt, I see nothing exciting atm. Unless someone whips out a dual core CPU that produces a maximum 12W of heat at 1Ghz and performs like an Athlon64 at that speed...Then that's something of interest.
