  Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz Performance Evaluation Another speed bump served up by Intel with ease By, Dave Altavilla June 23, 2003   Once again, Intel has decided to turn up the heat on their arch rival, AMD.  In a sort of digital ying-yang, the battle for Performance Desktop and Workstation Processor leadership, presses on relentlessly.  Like opposite yet mutual compliments, Intel releases the 3GHz P4 with 800MHz system bus and AMD lets fly with the Athlon XP 3200+.  It's almost like nature intended it to be, isn't it?  As Intel and AMD duke it out, in an effort to out class the competition, the end user community enjoys yet another incremental performance enhancement. ...

  Intel's Pentium 4 3GHz With 800MHz System Bus And The i875P "Canterwood" Chipset More bandwidth and leading edge desktop technology for the P4 By, Dave Altavilla and Chris Angelini April 14, 2003   Time certainly does fly when you are clipping along at 3GHz, doesn't it?  It has been a whole 5 months since Intel released their last processor speed bump.  Intel actually let this one ride a little bit it seems.  In early February, AMD let loose with their new "Barton" core based Athlon XP 3000+ (2.166GHz), in an effort to keep pace with Intel's brute force approach to processing.  Don't misunderstand us, there certainly is nothing wrong with "brute...

  Intel's Pentium 4 3.06GHz Processor Intel breaks 3GHz barrier and  introduces Hyperthreading to the mainstream By, Dave Altavilla and Chris Angelini November 14, 2002   It was only two short months ago that we gave you our hands on experiences with Intel's last flagship processor for the PC, the 2.8GHz Pentium 4.  As we neared what seemed to be an almost mythical clock speed of 3GHz, we paused to wonder for a moment, whether or not the average user could take advantage of the power of a Pentium 4 at this clock speed or the future Athlon XP3000+, for that matter.  Again, that pause we had was only for a moment and we snapped back to reality with a hearty Neanderthal...

  The Pentium 4 2.8GHz Processor Intel ups the ante once again By, Dave Altavilla August 26, 2002 Strategic Marketing, most larger brand name companies have this function rolled up into a Marketing Manager's responsibilities.  Otherwise, in the case of Intel and AMD, they actually have a Strategic Marketing team who's sole purpose in life is to define the strategies and game plans from a product and branding perspective, that will maximize penetration within the customer base versus the competition.  Often times, Strategic Marketing means trying to get an edge on the competition by learning everything you can about them and leveraging your own strategies, against their weaknesses...

  Intel's Pentium 4 with 533MHz Bus and The i850E Chipset 2.4 and 2.53GHz performance with a 533MHz Front Side Bus By, Dave Altavilla May 6, 2002 There are many architectural attributes of Intel's Pentium 4 processor, that will drive incremental performance for CPU core, as the months and years roll on, in their battle against their primary competitor, Advanced Micro Devices.  Intel engineered the P4 core with a staggeringly deep 20 stage pipeline, that allows clock frequencies to scale with ease.  There are certainly pros and cons to having this deeply pipelined architecture.  However, in a market where MHz and GHz are king, not only will more clock cycles drive performance,...

  Intel's New 2.4GHz Pentium 4 Northwood 200MHz more, like a walk in the park By, Dave Altavilla April 2, 2002 When Intel released it's 2GHz and 2.2GHz Northwood Pentium 4 Processors, we were here to show you the finer points of increased on chip cache sizes and a few more MHz to play with.  At that point in time, did you ever think that a mere three months later, we would be back to show you Intel's flagship take another 200 steps in the right direction?  Well, to be honest, we've been in possession of the 2.4GHz variety of the Pentium 4 Northwood for about a month now.  So in all truth, Intel was yielding these chips even quicker than at a quarterly cycle rate.  We're...

  Intel's Pentium 4 2.2GHz. and 2.0AGHz. Processors "Northwood" Enters The Arena By, Dave Altavilla January 7, 2002 Intel and AMD's perpetual GHz. race continues in the new year, at a fevered pace that is almost more than the sluggish PC Industry can absorb.  Soon new machines from the major OEMs, will line the shelves of various retailers, hoping to lure potential customers with the promise of earth shattering performance and features that no one should live without.  Frankly, with the myriad of choices, flavors and clock speeds available to the consumer, it's no surprise that the average prospective PC customer now looks at only a few data points on which to base their...

  Intel's Pentium 4 2GHz. Socket 478 Processor Breaking through the 2GHz. ceiling with ease By, Dave Altavilla August 27, 2001 Alright, I'll admit it...  I was a William Shatner fan.  That is to say, when old Bill played the all powerful James T. Kirk, I couldn't help but admire his swagger and command of the situation.  Unfortunately, times change and old Bill finds himself stooping to the level of lame Priceline.com commercials.  He's merely a shell of the man he use to be.  Ahh, but I can still hear the words echoing in my head, "we must have more power Scotty!"  Yes sir, ol' Bill sure did know how to command attention, back in the day. Well, much... Read more...
Intel's "Tualatin" Pentium III 1.20GHz. Processor Encore From a Classic By, Jeff Bouton July 31, 2001 Not long ago, the rumors of a new Pentium III processor called "Tualatin" began circulating around the internet.  The occasional article claiming information or pictures of the "yet to be announced" processor would crop up, offering us a little glimpse of what was to come.  Some of you may have heard of the new .13 micron process, or maybe that it required less voltage than previous Pentium III's.  For me, my first glimpse was a screenshot of a 1.26GHz. chip from Taiwan with 1.475V stamped on it and a large silver shield hiding the die.  Information...

  Shuttle's AV40 VIA P4X266 DDR P4 Motherboard RAMBUS, watch your back, DDR comes to the P4 By, Dave Altavilla October 15, 2001 Here's a vocabulary word for you, "litigious".  Good one isn't it?  Before you get nervous that this is some sort of creative writing lesson, let me explain, as this word is very fitting for this article.  Stemming from the root word "litigate", a synonym for the word litigious would be "controversial".  As you are aware, "litigate" speaks of legal actions and law suits.  By now I think you see where I am going here.  The company RAMBUS and the DRAM technology it invented, has been a huge source...
