Default Dual-Core Pentium 4 “Prescott” Processors on the Horizon

If one Prescott is lurk warm for you, try dual.

Dual-Core Prescott Spotted

At the Intel/PC Magazine-sponsored Technology for Business Today seminar in Washington, D.C., Intel representatives discussed the present and future of computers touching upon the modern and next-generation microprocessors. The firm’s officials reiterated the company’s plans to issue dual-core processors in 2005 and even shed some light on the technical information about the chips. Apparently, the desktop processors will continue to utilize the NetBurst architecture and at this point such central processing units are referred as dual-core Prescott microprocessors. Mobile dual-core chips will have architecture similar to that of the Pentium M products available today. Such products may also find themselves in desktops, though, the premier performance will be offered only by dual-core NetBurst products.

The information about dual-core Prescott processors fully modifies everything that has been reported about the future of Intel’s processors during the most recent weeks. Because of rising power consumption of the new Pentium 4 chips it was believed that Intel would withdraw from the NetBurst in favour of more efficient Pentium M architecture.

Four 64-bit Microprocessors?

Intel reportedly said that with the HyperThreading technology enabled operating systems will report availability of four microprocessors into the system when a single dual-core Prescott is installed. Representatives also confirmed that future Prescott products will feature 64-bit capability.

Concerns over Power Consumption

As reported numerous times, because of certain issues with Intel’s 90nm fabrication process, actual chips made using it heat pretty well presumably as a result of power leakage processes. Power leakage is current flowing in a circuitry that is not being used at the moment. While the problem has been around for decades, it became dramatically serious with Intel’s Pentium 4 E processors known as Prescott. The high-end Prescott chips dissipate 103W today and will increase the figure towards 115W later during the year.
