Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor With Hyper-Threading
Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor With Hyper-Threading Technology Introduced At 3.2 GHz
Hyper-Threading Technology Available Across Pentium 4 Processor Product Line
Intel Corporation today introduced a new version of the Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor with Hyper-Threading (HT) Technology** at 3.2 GHz. Pentium 4 processor-based PCs and Intel® Xeon™-based servers with HT technology are now available across a range of mainstream and performance system price points.
Consumers using computers powered by Intel’s newest processor will be able to more quickly edit their digital music, photos and movies, often doing two of these activities simultaneously without sacrificing performance. Businesses using high-performance PCs based on this processor can help maximise employee productivity in multitasking environments and when conducting processor-intensive tasks such as video production, financial analysis, and engineering design.
“Our latest Pentium 4 Processors with HT Technology can handle the most demanding computer user’s day,” said Phillip Dows, Marketing Manager, Intel Australia & New Zealand. “These individuals can start their day with a multitasking work environment, move on to encoding home movies to DVD while playing music files, and end their day with the latest multiplayer Internet games.”
With a 512K Level 2 cache, a choice of 400, 533 and 800 MHz system bus speeds, and manufactured on Intel’s leading 0.13-micron process technology, the Intel Pentium 4 processor is the leading microprocessor for consumers and business users worldwide.
Performance for the Digital Lifestyle 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 with HT Technology operating at 3.2 GHz can convert one minute of digital video to MPEG 4 while encoding about twenty-six minutes worth of music to mp3 format over four times faster than a PC based on an Intel Pentium III processor at 1 GHz - the top-speed processor just three years ago***. In addition, consumers can edit photos nearly three times faster with a PC based on the Pentium 4 Processor with HT Technology at 3.2 GHz versus a 1 GHz Pentium III processor-based PC***.
Benefits for Business
High-performance PCs based on the Pentium 4 Processor with
HT Technology at 3.2 GHz enable greater user satisfaction
with quicker response time and improved productivity in
multitasking business environments. In industry standard
benchmarks such as SYSmark* 2002, PCs based on the Pentium 4
Processor with HT Technology at 3.2 GHz deliver more than
three times faster performance than the current installed
base of 1 GHz PCs***. With content creation applications
such as Adobe AfterEffects* and Discreet 3d StudioMax*,
computers based on the Pentium 4 Processor with HT
Technology at 3.2 GHz provide over 3.4 times faster
performance than the installed base of 1 GHz
