If it were a film though, it would probably be called Two Processors and
a Chipset. The stars of this little show are Intel's latest Pentium 4 -
the 670, taking the range up to a heady 3.8GHz. Joining this in Intel's
quest for Galactic domination is the launch of a new chip, the Pentium D.
Signalling the arrival of dual-core technology for the consumer this is a
great leap forward. The Pentium D is launching in three flavours - the
820, the 830 and the 840 running at 2.8, 3.0 and 3.2GHz respectively.
Accompanying the new processor is a new chipset to put it in - the 945
Express available with and without the 'new and improved' integrated
graphics - 945G with, and 945P, without.
