hi,

I've been unable to dig up much info on future plans for Pentium 4 hyper-threaded chips.

I know currently theres a 3.06ghz Pentium 4 with hyper threading? are more to follow? are they gonna all be 3ghz++ or are they gonna introduce 2.5/2.8ghz HT-enabled chips?

More importantly... do you people reckon that HT is here to stay (wrt Intels future plans) or is it just a stop gap between now and Pentium-5 (?)

cheers,
Jack

You shall be incorrect Nausicaa....intel will release hyperthreading enabled processors in the following speeds:...

2.4, 2.6, 2.8, 3.06, 3.2ghz and they are all planned to be released the first quarter of 03'....then the next fastest processor (3.4ghz w/ HT) will not be released until the 3rd quarter of 03'
The prescott core processor is scheduled to be released the 4th quarter of 03' at 3.6ghz and then the Tejas core in 2004 in the 4-5ghz range...

Kinda a weird notion that they're gonna go a whole quarter without releasing anything.

I guess AMD isn't pressuring them enough. They don't need to release anything too quickly now.

<i>civilized</i> - so these 2.4/2.6/2.8/3.2 (3.06 is already out) are gonna be appearing in the next few weeks then (1st quarter '03?!)...

Sounds good to me.

I've always liked AMD for having fast processors at a reasonable price (in my estimation you can get more "bangs per buck" with an AMD than you can Intel)... but they just aren't with it when it comes to the top-end high performance jobs!

That is the schedule according to the roadmap...but you know how roadmaps can change...so I wouldnt hold my breath

According to recent info at IDF, the new P4's with HT and FSB800 will be released in May.

these slower p4's with ht will also have a 800mhz fsb

with an 800mhz fsb, does that mean it'll support faster RAM? (PC2800?).

what i get it april but they can change the month as only 2 or 3 ram module past the intel specification for canterwood.hardware.fr got some info on PAT or turbo mode according to the source performance can be increase by 4% compare to I865 not bad for a single feature.

Just next to the lab and the bunker you will find the marketing departement.

there will be chipsets that support dual ddr400/333

I already own an Asus P4-PE motherboard (one of the first to support 3.06ghz HT chips), so I intend to use that to save myself a £100 or so.

thanks for the link zero....I knew that the 2.4 etc was gonig to have HT but wasnt sure if they were giong to release 533fsb models as well as the 800...I wish they would have HT for the 533 models

it seems the 3.06 will be the only 533fsb cpu with ht.
