Intel's First Multi-Core Silicon Production Begins

Intel announced it has completed initial production runs of dual-core processors and provided further details about its multi-core plans to its customers, signaling the beginning of an era when PCs will have two or more "brains" inside.

Intel plans to deliver two separate dual-core products and dual-core-enabled chipsets for its Pentium(R) processor-class families in the second quarter, including the Pentium(R) processor Extreme Edition. The Intel(R) Pentium(R) Processor Extreme Edition will include Hyper-Threading Technology, providing the ability to process four software "threads" simultaneously.

"In addition to our products, we are investing heavily to further prepare the industry for the shift to multi-core computing platforms," said Robert Crooke, vice president, Desktop Platforms Group and general manager, Desktop Marketing and Strategic Planning, Intel. "We accelerated this effort with the introduction of Hyper-Threading Technology three years ago and we're extending it by building multi-core processors. Platforms based on Intel multi-core technology will provide the performance and responsiveness consumers and businesses need to get the most enjoyment and productivity from their applications."

These first dual-core desktop platforms reflect Intel's continued investment in silicon and platform innovation, manufacturing technology, capacity and industry enabling efforts that span the desktop, server, workstation and mobile market segments.

"As the leader in the extreme gaming, consumer and workstation markets, Dell plans to offer Intel's powerful dual-core processor technology on high-end systems," said John Medica, senior vice president, Dell Product Group. "No other companies make innovative technology more affordable to large groups of customers than Dell and Intel."

Dual- and multi-core products are designed by including two or more full CPU cores within a single processor enabling the simultaneous managing of activities. When combined with HT Technology, which allows a processor to present itself as two logical processors, the Pentium Processor Extreme Edition product can process four software threads simultaneously by more efficiently using resources that otherwise may sit idle.

Platforms based around Intel's dual-core Pentium Processor Extreme Edition are an ideal solution for PC computing and entertainment enthusiasts who crave computing power for audio, video, digital design and gaming tasks. The Pentium Processor Extreme Edition will be combined with a new chipset named the Intel(R) 955X Express chipset, formerly codenamed "Glenwood," that includes features such as Intel(R) High Definition Audio, PCI-Express and faster dual-channel DDR-2 memory. Intel will also couple its mainstream "Smithfield" processor with two new chipsets named the Intel(R) 945G Express chipset and Intel(R) 945P Express chipset, both previously code-named "Lakeport" in the second quarter of the year.

Intel has more than 10 multi-core related projects underway and plans to increase its software and solutions enabling product lines, tools, investment and programs to further spur software design and validation.
