Intel not to make 4-Gigahertz version of Pentium 4 PC processor
www.chinaview.cn 2004-10-15 20:02:26

    Beijing, Oct. 15 (Xinhuanet) --The world's No. 1 chipmaker Intel says that it will not make the 4-gigahertz version of its Pentium 4 PC processor. Intel will release another chip that has fewer gigahertz.

 กก The long-promised chip was supposed to power the fastest-ever generation of Intel-based PCs early next year, China Radio International reported Friday.

    Instead, Intel will release another chip that has fewer gigahertz but uses different technology to increase its speed.

    Intel's shift marks a dramatic change for the chip industry, which is moving away from boosts in megahertz and gigahertz for the first time since the PC was invented.

    The chips that will replace Intel's 4 GHz processor has received a performance boost from more short-term memory storage. That keeps more data handy, so the chip spends less time retrieving it.
