    not that anyone is going this direction with the 64 comparably priced
    but, wireless, in everything,scaling back the cost of production, might work

    No your probably right, they won't sell mutch prescotts at all and go bankrupt within a year leaving the whole market to Amd.. :devil win

    Don't under estimate Intel, it's been pretty damn hard for Amd to beat their products for quite some time now.. In other areas than the price that is.. :) I do not doubt the 64 will beat them all P4's available today and maybe even the first Prescott. But when the Prescotts shows up the cpu speeds will accelerate rather quick over the next year as shown in Wetas post..

    Don't take anything for granted m8, ya might be disapointed.. :2cents:

    you cannot underestimate intel..............read the link about their possible direction, wireless and smaller die sizes for increased profitability....................possibly having the muscle to really drop the price, making larger die opterons harder to follow

    AMD are as well as shown in their latest roadmap but whether this will make Intel run we'll just have to wait and see.

    that will help amd's production costs as well............i wonder if the dual channel 939 will be of that ilk?

    Prescott will be 90nm and eventually scaling down to 65nm with the later Prescotts in their new socket.

    And if that price is really true, that blows AMD out of the water.

    Pricing : 3.2Ghz - $278



    EDIT: There will be 2.80 and 3.00 Prescott processors to come as well for even cheaper. Expect the Prescott 2.80 to be around the same price as the current P4 2.4 ($178 at intro).

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]

    <center>Prescott has 64-bit compatibility built in
    Needles and pincers
    </center>

    Since we published the pins and needling story yesterday, the black shirted moles have come out of the woodwork about the innards of Prescott. Those little critters can't stop talking. The power people told us how many pins they needed, months ago, a crazed genius told us about Prescott's die, and lots of people told us that to count said non-power pins. Peeks into the bios code told us more. Motherboard people strongly denied it, and winked at us. Something was up, it was coming from too many directions. Four strong sources, but no smoking gun.
    Then, in an anti-climactic burst from out of left field, it all hit at once. Someone came up to me and said 'Guess what I just heard a senior Intel executive say'. Talk about months of hard work ruined by a person who happened on the story of the year. That said, you heard it here first yesterday, Prescott has 64-bit functionality in it. Hans DeVries was dead on.

    This answer poses 2 more questions. The first is what instruction set do they use? The AMD64 instruction extensions are theirs to use because of licensing agreements with AMD, but we think they would sooner eat the IDF press room food than do that. MS has been long rumored to tell Intel what they can and can not do, and their record in confrontations like this are not one to bet against. Rumor has it that the vole has said that they will only support a single 64-bit extension to IA32, but then months ago they said they would be supporting 5 64-bit architectures in windows. The mystery deepens.

    The more important thing is Itanium. Word on the show floor is that every Intel person thinks that now is the time, and soon they hope to sell more than 4 digits worth (the number of zeros, not the number of fingers, we aren't THAT cynical) of machines in a quarter. The buzz among those with a vested interest is palpable. Performance in a lot of benchmarks is definitely there, but the market still seems to be in the 'dip a toe in' stage. Consumer response, and the response of vendors shows marginal interest.

    So the burning question is, will Intel officially tell the world about the 64-bit extensions, and gut the chances of Itanium taking off, or will they sit on it? AMD will most likely determine how and when the 64-bit code gets unveiled, but don't hold your breath. It takes a lot of market share erosion to dump that many years of R&D, and from the looks of it, that isn't happening.
