Intelís Desktop Dual-Core Chips to be Clocked at 3.20GHz,
Intelís code-named Smithfield dual-core desktop processors will be clocked at around 3.00GHz clock-speed and will support 64-bit capability, claims report at AnandTech web-site, however, the chips will not sport Hyper-Threading technology along with high-speed processor system bus.
Future dual-core microprocessors for desktops from Intel Corp. that are projected to emerge in the third quarter, 2005, will run at 2.80GHz, 3.00GHz and 3.20GHz, integrate 2MB of unified cache, utilize 800MHz processor system bus and feature LGA775 form-factor. The dual-core desktop processor internally called Smithfield will be made using 90nm process technology, each processing engine will use the same architecture with the current Pentium 4 ďPrescottĒ chip, however, the new central processing unit will feature ďarbitration logic that will balance bus transactions between the two CPUsĒ.
For some reason Intel has reportedly decided to disable the Hyper-Threading technology with its dual-core desktop chips. This will allow the processors to handle two threads independently more efficiently than current chips do, however, if the chips feature HT tech, they would be able to handle up to four threads of code. The Smithfield will also sport EM64T, XD bit as well as Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technologies
