Since this name have already a bad reputation.....
Intel Corp. maybe hours away from releasing its latest and last Pentium 4 processor based on the original
Intel’s Pentium 4 570J processor with 3.80GHz frequency, Hyper-Threading technology and 1MB of level-two cache is designed to fit into current 800MHz Quad Pumped Bus mainboards running i925- and i915-series of chipsets.
However, a bit enhanced performance is not the only peculiarity of the new microprocessor, as it also sports eXecute Disable (XD) technology that is sometimes referred as NX bit as well as EIST (Enhanced Intel Speed Step) technology that adjusts performance depending on load in order to maintain low heat dissipation and quiet operation of personal computers. Eventually lower-speed Pentium 4 processors will also get XD and EIST features. Still, the new 570J processor does not have 64-bit capability, even though it is months from Microsoft’s release of a special version of Windows XP that takes advantage of 64-bit chips. Some believe Intel will enable 64-bit capability in its chips only in 2005, when the new processors based on the
Intel Corp. recently scrapped plans to release its Intel Pentium 4 product clocked at 4.00GHz citing commitment to release high quality and reliable products in large commercial volumes. Instead, the company said, it would concentrate on feature-set of its future microprocessors as well as different methods of increasing performance. So far Intel’s official plans included chips with 2MB of L2 cache, 1066MHz processor system bus and two processing engines, all of the mentioned capabilities are likely to increase performance in various situations.
Usually Intel’s top chips aimed at desktops cost $637. Along with the release of new top-of-the-range products other processors become more affordable. Some retail stores in Tokyo,
