  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...

  AMD's Athlon XP 2200+ Processor The "Thoroughbreds" at .13 Debut! By, Marco Chiappetta June 10, 2002 Approximately one year ago, AMD Athlon processors based on the "Thunderbird" core, were reaching the end of their lifespan.  The "Thunderbird" had long been a favorite of the enthusiast community.  It was priced very competitively and performed on par, or better than anything Intel had to offer at the time.  AMD wasn't done giving Intel a hard time yet, however.  They introduced a new version of their immensely popular CPU based on a new core dubbed "Palomino". With the new "Palominos", AMD incorporated a few key enhancements... Read more...
  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...

  AMD's Athlon XP 2100+ Processor Crunching Code at 1733MHz. By, Marco Chiappetta March 13, 2002 For about three years now, a fierce battle has been raging between Intel and AMD.  This battle has taken consumers down a road that led to a wider selection of higher performing processors than ever before, and at prices that were much lower than previous generations of flagship CPUs.  As each company introduced a new speed step, or introduced a new processor core, the competition was right there to introduce their new part in an effort to steal some thunder and make some noise of their own.   The Athlon arrived and quickly became the first "mainstream" CPU to break...

  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...

Preparing For a Dual-Processor PC Know what you're getting into... By, Marco ?BigWop? Chiappetta 1 / 11 / 2001    Hello Folks.  Today we?re doing something a little different here on H.H.  We normally focus on straightforward hardware reviews but while working on my most recent project?a review of the Abit VP6?I hit a little speed bump.  As most of you probably know by now, the VP6 is Abit?s newest Dual-Processor motherboard.  Last week I sat down to install our review board and about an hour into checking it out my system went dead.  I had killed my power supply!  What a bummer!  It was a decent 300-Watt unit that came with my case.  It had been...

The Intel Pentium 4 1.7GHz. Processor The "Hyper Pipelined" CPU takes it up a notch By Dave Altavilla - April 24 2001    IC Engineering, it's an exacting science.  When a Design Engineer or Engineering Manager sits down to architect his or her next chip, there are a myriad of decisions that must be made that will affect the outcome of their efforts.  Designing a modern day microprocessor is a daunting task.  When you are doing things from the ground up, as did the Intel design team with the Pentium 4,  you need to design not only with more than just current application and performance expectations in mind but with insight many years into the future. ...
