Intel Demos 64-bit Pentium 4 Chips

@ 2004/08/10
Intel Corp.’s retail partners from Tokyo, Japan, have started to demonstrate boxes with special flavours of Intel Pentium 4 processors featuring 64-bit capability. The move may mean intention to supply such products into retail channel, which does not correspond to Intel’s plans.

A report over Akiba 2 Go tells about a number of retailers who were demonstrating Intel Pentium 4 processors in "almost" retail boxes during the weekend. Processors’ packaging was black and white, while typically Intel’s product boxes are made according to registered colours for Intel’s trademarks, such as Intel Pentium 4 or Intel Xeon.
