    Not sure but other countries already have them.

    They are officially released for the US in 10 days.

    Intel Prescott benchmarked against Northwood 2.8GHz
    More Prescott leaks


    There's yet more information on Intel's Prescott on a Taiwanese site.
    This time, the benchmarks compare a Prescott 2.8GHz against a Northwood 2.8GHz using a number of benchmarks.

    Those benchmarks include a bunch of SiSoftware Sandra, CPUBench2003, and PCMark measurements.

    The table giving these is right at the bottom of the page, here.

    NOTE: This page loads very slowly but does eventually load.

    Hmm I see a couple things here.

    First, it looks as though the Northwood is faster in most if not all of the Synthetic tests (like Sandra), though the Prescott is faster in the real world tests (like Super Pi, 3DMark).

    Second, the Prescott's SSE3 support, PNI, etc, are not yet activated through software.

    I'll still wait for the 775 version though when the silicon has been refined a bit.

    And Intel have had to increase the pipeline depth to 30 stages to get the ramp up...ie more pipe depth the less work per clock cycle..the higher clock speed can be ramped. Keep in mind the P4's 20 stage pipe meant that the P4 was slower by far clock-for-clock than the P3. This is why the test result above for the Prescot at 2.8 is slower than the Northwoods. Intel appear to have real problems.

    Oldbugger there is also a problem appearing with the L1 cache.

    Most of the current boards out there do not recognise the L1 cache and performance is hindered, and benchmarks should not be taken as final.
