Updated With the 2GHz Pentium 4 nicely launched, Intel's attention will now turn to its successor, the 0.13 micron die-shrink codenamed Northwood, due to ship in November at 2GHz and 2.2GHz.
Boxed versions of the new CPUs will follow hard on the heels of the OEM releaseas, according to channel roadmaps see by The Register. Said roadmaps also detail Intel's plans for its mobo products over the next six months or so, and we've added these to our release schedule, below.
In the meantime, further price cuts are expected on 28 October:
·2.0GHz P4 - $401, -29%
·1.9GHz P4 - $274, -27%
·1.8GHz P4 - $225, -12%
·1.7GHz P4 - $193
·1.6GHz P4 - $163
·1.5GHz P4 - $133
·1.4GHz P4 - $133
·1.3GHz P4 - $133
·1.2GHz PIII - $241, -10%
·1.13GHz PIII - $193, -14%
·1.10GHz PIII - $225, -7%
The 2.2GHz 0.13 micron P4 is expected to debut at $615, the 2GHz version at $562.
October will see the official end of the boxed 800MHz Celeron and the boxed 700MHz Mobile Celeron, following on from the recent death of the boxed 933MHz and 1GHz Pentium III Xeon server processors.
Looking ahead, we've received some more information on the upcoming Brookdale and Tulloch chipsets, both of which we now learn will support the upcoming 533MHz Pentium 4 frontside bus. That suggests to us that next year's 0.13 micron P4s - those that will ship at over 2.4GHz, anyway - will be use this new FSB speed, since their launch coincides with these chipsets.
Brookdale and Tulloch are expected to drive Intel's promotion of USB 2.0.
