    <center>Intel Prescott to be born on the 3rd of December
    Shy and retiring deputy prime processors of our time
    </center>

    We learned about the Intel Prescott launch date just before IDF started but we didn’t want to create panic in already hectic days for Intel employees. Aren't we sweet?
    Prescott is a 2004 chip in case you didn't figure it out before. We understand Intel will release this chip to the world on December the 3rd, at least that is their current cunning plan.

    Till then Intel has to tap its fingers and growl over the AMD 64, FX euphoria and that’s why Pentium 4 Extreme Edition makes perfect sense now.

    Its 2MB more will give Athlon FX a run for its money and Athlon 64 with its single channel memory controller is not faster than the current P4 so Intel does not have to worry much about that. Prescott simply is not ready to be launched in October to drop a shadow on AMD's offering.

    Intel always said that Prescott will come in Q4 and December is the time when it will have enough samples to send to the press and of course to its loyal and first always customer Dell. The company will have some units in retail and some Prescott machines will be for sale for Xmas shopping just to give you the feeling that the CPU is there.

    IDF reports confirmed our magical number of 103 W consumption and we reckon that the primary focus of the Intel team is to make it less hot or otherwise to buy some company that would produce water cooling for it.

    Prescott will be born at 3.2 and 3.4 GHz and still there are no news about its. The current plan is to expand its availability in Q1 so you can easily say that Prescott is 2004 more then a 2003 phenomenon.

    To parrot, we repeat that this CPU will be priced at $417 for 3.2 GHz and $637 for 3.4 GHz version featuring 800 MHz FSB, 1 MB cache, and the Prescott New Instructions (PNI), 90nm marchitecture.

    In Q1 2004 Intel will introduce 3.6, 3.0 and 2.8 GHz Prescott parts so Prescott will go cheap then as well.

    December seems the perfect time for Prescott to warm the ****les of our hearts and the cold homes and houses of this northern hemisphere.

    Awwww, I was thinking the 3.0 and 2.8 Prescotts were coming out in time for X-Mas. I wanted to get one of those chips for my new system. Should I wait till Q1 2004 to get the new Prescott chips or just get an existing Intel chip (Like 2.4c or 2.6c) for my new comp for X-Mas? BTW, how much will the cheaper version of the Athlon 64 by Christmas?

    The cheapest A64 is around $450 right now........

    I recommend waiting and getting the slowest clocked Prescott (2.8) as it will have the lowest multiplier thus having the most potential to reach the 3.6 speeds at much less cost. It should beat the A64 and be a lot cheaper at the same time. It should cost about the same as the current 2.4c was at intro, around $178.

    <center>Intel Pentium 4 with SSE3 "Prescott" pushed in 2004
    No 0.13 Micron Pentium 4 with 1MB L3 to come
    </center>

    We have managed to find out that Intel has changed the formal launch of its Prescott processor from the 3rd December 2003 to sometime “between January and early February” 2004. The company will ship the 90nm processors this year, but its partners will not sell the parts before 2004, says a source close to the Santa Clara, California-based company.

    Additionally, the source pointed out that there will be no Intel Pentium 4 processors made using 0.13 micron technology with 1MB of cache, as we mentioned last week.

    What we can state now almost surely, the Prescott processor will be branded as yet another Pentium 4 processor, not Pentium 5 or something else. This time we should wait for something like Intel Pentium 4 with SSE3 technology, since the anticipated Prescott New Instructions got the SSE3 name.

    As previously reported, the initial Intel Pentium 4 “Prescott” microprocessors will be clocked at 2.80GHz, 3.00GHz, 3.20GHz and 3.40GHz and will integrate 1MB of L2 cache. Besides, Intel is ready to ship its Celeron processors with 256KB L2 at 2.80GHz and 3.06GHz speeds with 533MHz PSB also made using 90nm technology.

    Pricing of the Intel Pentium 4 processors with SSE3 technology will be $637, $417, $278 and $218 at launch, but will be cut to $417, $278, $218 and $178 for 3.40GHz, 3.20GHz, 3.00GHz and 2.80GHz parts respectively on the 15th of February 2004. Launch date for the last Socket 478 Pentium 4 processor at 3.60GHz has not been set yet, but it is anticipated that the CPU will come in the Q2 2004.

    As you see, there are not a lot of changes in Intel’s roadmap except the major adjust of the Prescott processor launch schedule.

    <center>Prescott set for 90-100W power draw - Intel</center>

    'Prescott' will never exceed 100W of power dissipation, Intel said today, in a bid to keep the heated debate over the as-yet-unlaunched Pentium processor's thermal characteristics from bubbling over.

    "The Prescott thermal envelope will be between 90W and 100W," a spokesman told The Register. "This [will apply] throughout the entire life of the product, not just for the launch."

    That marks the first time the company has come clean and put a precise figure - well, a pair of figures - on the next-generation processor's heat-generating potential.

    cranks up to 2.8 as well, soul...................so, it will be interesting to see the comparisons

    <center>533MHz FSB Prescott spotted

    <img src="http://images.tweaktown.com/news/news_prescott 2.66.jpg"></center>

    As we know, Intel will be launching their 90nm Prescott processors in Q1 next year and the initial clock speeds will range from 2.8Ghz to 3.4Ghz on 800Mhz FSB. Strangely, a 533Mhz FSB Prescott processor clocked at 2.66Ghz has been spotted which is no where in the Intel roadmap previously. An earlier report at The Inquirer revealed that this processor is meant for the value segment and is packed with only 256KB of L2 cache to be available in Q2 of next year. Interestingly, Intel has decided to let 533Mhz FSB to stay on longer and it is unclear if the 533Mhz FSB Prescotts are HT ready.

    Very very very few have gotten 2.8 because that requires 280fsb which most of the current boards won't do without modification.

    It also requires sub zero cooling.....most people are locked at 2600.

    weta, that CPU is the Prescott Celeron.
