As you probably know, Intel released their 2.0GHz Pentium 4 processor today and Overclockers Online has published a review of this new powerful processor. Want to see how it holds up to the competition? Take a closer look. Heres a Snip:
"Shifting back to the present, the P4 has established itself in the high-end market and is available at the following speeds: 1.3GHz, 1.4GHz, 1.5GHz, 1.6GHz, 1.7GHz and 1.8GHz. Today, two more flavors are released to the public, namely the 1.9GHz and 2.0GHz Pentium 4. Although both cpu's are equal to their precedessors, with the only exception being the clockspeed, it is still a very interesting product because today, the first processor that breaks the 2GHz barrier is available in a store near you! At the same moment we are also looking at the last P4 based upon the "Willamette" core, which means it we'll be shifting to the 0.13 micron fabrication process soon. In a few weeks/months time, Intel will introduce their new "Northwood" core, which will be using the brand new socket478 package. The package gets smaller, and of course the actual processor will get smaller to, using a 0.13 micron die resulting in less power consumption and reaching higher clock speeds. With the launch of the socket423 P4 2.0GHz, Intel has also released the socket478 P4 2.0GHz. This one does not use the "northwood" core, it is still using the "willamette" core so it is basicly the same processor we are reviewing today, but in a different package."
