Intel Corp launches P4 at 2.8 GHz

Intel Corporation has introduced new versions of the Intel P4 processor at
speeds now up to 2.8 GHz. The new processors allow consumers to enjoy a richer
PC experience with broadband audio and video content, games, music, photos and
movies. At the same time, systems based on the high-performance Pentium 4
processor are a valuable investment for a child’s education. In business,
high-performance PCs can help maximize productivity in multitasking

The Intel Pentium 4 has a 512K Level 2 cache, a choice of 400 MHz or 533 MHz
system bus speeds and is manufactured on Intel’s 0.13-micron process.

With high-performance PCs, consumers can dramatically reduce the time it
takes to encode digital media such as music, pictures, and movies. A computer
based on the Pentium 4 processor operating at 2.8 GHz can convert more than five
one-hour videotapes to MPEG-4 digital video in the same time a 500 MHz PC can
convert a one-hour Videotape. Compared to a 500 MHz PC, consumers can edit
photos more than four times faster with a PC based on the Pentium 4 processor
2.8 Ghz.

High-performance Pentium 4 processor-based PCs enable greater user
satisfaction with quicker response time and improved productivity in today’s
multitasking business environments. For productivity and collaboration, Pentium
4 processor-based 2.8 GHz PCs provide almost six times faster performance than
the current installed base of older PCs. For XML-based Web services, Pentium 4
processor-based 2.8 GHz PCs provide almost four times faster performance than
the installed baseIntel is shipping boxed Intel Pentium 4 processors up to 2.8
GHz to Intel authorized distributors for system integrators worldwide.
